With the NFL Draft just a few days away, it’s time to take a closer look at some of the non-quarterback prospects the Redskins could select in the first round. We’ll start off with one of the most commonly linked names to the Redskins, Ole Miss wide receiver D.K. Metcalf.

Metcalf is an intriguing prospect. From an athletic point of view, Metcalf is the ideal wide receiver. He is 6-foot-3, 228 pounds with nearly 35 inch arms. He put up 27 reps on the bench press at the combine, so clearly he’s strong, but despite the massive frame and strength, he still has 4.3 speed in the 40-yard dash. That’s a rare blend of athletic traits, which all are highly desired from the wide receiver position. However, his film doesn’t match up to the hype generated from those measurables. He never managed 40 catches in a season throughout his college career and rarely dominated a game like those athletic traits might suggest he could.

That lack of production…
