Seahawks’ DK Metcalf determined to fix one part of his game
The Seattle Seahawks had a disappointing playoff exit, but DK Metcalf was one of the few outstanding rookies during their run. His spectacular catches were some of the biggest things that made a lot of Seahawks fans happy.
However, he’s far from satisfied with his rookie campaign. He thinks he’s still far from the finished product as he’s looking to improve one aspect of his game.
According to Seahawks Wire’s Patrick Olde Loohuis, the former Ole Miss standout will be focusing on lowering his drops. If he manages to improve his catches, then he will be one of the most dangerous wide receivers in the NFL.
“Mainly my drops,” Metcalf stated. “I had way too many drops in my opinion. Some of those drops could have changed the outcome of the game. I’m just working on those drops, man.”
He also claimed that while he was happy with how he performed, there’s still plenty of improvements to be made on his game as he moves forward with the Seahawks.
“I think I did pretty good [in my first year], but there’s always something I can work on,” Metcalf told NBC Sports Northwest. “That’s going to be my main focus during the offseason is just working on the things I saw as flaws during my rookie season and just build on that.
He had a decent rookie campaign, finishing with 900 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. He stepped up his game during the playoffs, finishing with 219 receiving yards and one touchdown.
Hopefully, his outstanding rookie season with the Seahawks will result in a better Metcalf come the 2020 season.
