“Metcalf went out for the year with a neck injury after seven games. Prior to that, he was playing well, exploiting a lot of man coverage with teams focused on stopping A.J. Brown. For his 2018, Metcalf totaled 26 receptions for 569 yards and five touchdowns. The big wideout has mismatch size and is a red-zone weapon for the NFL. He should have returned to Ole Miss for 2019, but he decided to enter the 2019 NFL Draft. His medical exam and his route-running are going to be very important for his draft grade.”
In Metcalf I see the strength of Alshon Jeffrey to win on most of the 50-50 balls. He has the tall man game down with an exclamation point. He also beats up and abuses db’s in a fashion that reminds you of either Julio Jones, or DeAndre Hopkins. As a #Ninersfan this is one of my fave receivers and would fit in with the Shanahan’s way of doing things seamlessly.
