Will DK Metcalf be the Seahawks savior this season? Up next, we preview Seattle Seahawks betting odds and picks. Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf did not run fast enough to qualify for the finals in his professional track debut, but he fared better than many had expected from a football player competing against some of the world’s top sprinters.

Metcalf finished with an official time of 10.37 seconds. He finished last among the nine in his heat and 15th among the 17 who competed in the USA Track and Field Golden Games and Distance Open in Walnut, California.

“These are world-class athletes,” Metcalf said afterward on NBC streaming service Peacock, which broadcast the event, when asked whether he learned anything by competing in the event. “They do this for a living. It’s very different from football speed, from what I just realized. So, like I said, just excited to be out here.”

American Isiah Young had the lowest time of the first two heats of the 100 meters with a 10.09. The two times Metcalf beat were 10.38 (Derick Silva of Brazil) and 10.44 (American Maurice Eaddy).

Before the broadcast, former Olympic sprinter Ato Boldon said that something in the range of 10.6-10.7 would be a good time for the 6-foot-4, 229-pound Metcalf. You can join in Seahawks NFL betting at these sites.

“He did not embarrass himself,” Boldon said of Metcalf. “He hung with the pack. Yes, I think he’s eighth. But he ran well. I didn’t think he was going to run anywhere near that well.”

Before Sunday, Metcalf hadn’t competed in track since high school, when he was a standout hurdler and long-jumper and also competed on Oxford High School’s 4×100 meter relay team in Mississippi.

Metcalf tweeted Sunday evening: “Thank God for the opportunity. Thank @usatf for allowing me to come out today, thank my coaches, PT’s, family, and friends that supported!”
