The 2019 NFL Draft has come and gone with teams making their best picks for the future. In the case of the Seattle Seahawks, they had 11 total picks over the course of the draft. That included standout wide receiver DK Metcalf from Ole Miss. The star player was the team’s No. 64 pick in the draft’s second round and considered a steal for a team with uncertainty at that position. Metcalf will be playing in a football game soon enough, but ahead of that he’ll make his Madden 20 player debut.
DK Metcalf reveals Madden 20 player
Recently, a bunch of upcoming rookies were shown in EA’s exclusive Madden video. The future stars were enoying themselves as they got official face scans and likenesses created for the new Madden 20 game. Amongst those players was top draft pick Kyler Murray as well as fellow picks Josh Allen and Quinnen Williams.
A guy who wasn’t in that video was DK Metcalf, a star at the NFL Scouting Combine. At the 2019 Draft, Metcalf was a second-rounder but will still get into the Madden game. He recently tweeted a shoutout to the EA Sports Madden folks. The video below reveals the Madden 20 DK Metcalf in full celebratory motion.
Metcalf seems excited to be in the video game and is probably anxious to get on the real field too. Some of the fans believe he needs more muscle definition (for his Madden player). That’s because he brings quite the build and skills to the real football field.
Metcalf is 6-foot-3 and 228 pounds, per ESPN. While playing for Ole Miss, he had 26 receptions for 569 yards and five touchdowns. He was only a sophomore coming out of college, so he’s got plenty of potential to become an heir apparent to Doug Baldwin in Seattle.
As far as rookie ratings go, that’s anyone’s guess, but most rookies don’t get higher than the mid-80s. Metcalf will rise up in player ratings based on how much and how well he plays for coach Pete Carroll in his rookie season.
While Metcalf isn’t in Madden 19, the game added all of the first-round picks via a special NFL Draft event in Ultimate Team. For those who want to use the virtual DK Metcalf on the Seattle Seahawks, it’ll mean waiting for Madden 20 to arrive on August 2.
