The mere mention of former Ole Miss wide receiver DK Metcalf may stir up unwanted memories for Kentucky football fans, since he’s the guy who caught the game-winning pass in Kroger Field with only five second left in the Cats and Rebels’ meeting in 2017, a crushing loss for a UK program on the rise.
But Metcalf is a hot topic on the internet today after a recent picture of him shows he is now built like a WWE heavyweight champ:
Metcalf had his senior season at Ole Miss cut short with neck surgery last fall, but now he is cleared to participate in the upcoming NFL combine. He was already high on draft boards as one of the top wide receivers in the incoming draft class, but now teams might consider him for linebacker or defensive end.
Or he could be asked to star as the villain in the next Marvel movie.
