1. The Seahawks may have gotten a steal in D.K. Metcalf.
Metcalf put on a show during Seattle's rookie minicamp, with the best performance seen there since Russell Wilson in 2012. For three days he caught everything thrown to him, plucking the ball out of the air for several spectacular grabs. On one, he cut short a sideline route and used his 40-and-a-half-inch vertical leap to snatch a throw that would have sailed over nearly any other receiver.
At 6-foot-3 and 228 pounds, Metcalf has a size-speed combination that reminds of Calvin Johnson or Julio Jones. And even though he's considered raw as a route runner, it was clear that his recent work with longtime wide receivers coach Jerry Sullivan paid off.
"I know that everybody's wondering about this route tree thing and all that now," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. "I don't see that being a factor. He looks he's very well-versed, been coached."
The Seahawks went into the draft looking for a big wide receiver, but took defensive end L.J. Collier and safety Marquise Blair with their first two picks. Carroll said he couldn't believe Metcalf's fall to the bottom of the second round, which prompted general manager John Schneider to trade up to the 64th overall pick to get Metcalf. His rookie camp showing gave the Seahawks thoughts that he could start at split end and allow Tyler Lockett to move into the slot role in place of Doug Baldwin, who tweeted a retirement letter Sunday night.
