A quality receiver is a quarterback's best friend, and it appears there could be a blooming new relationship in Seattle at Seahawks workouts.

It didn't take long for rookie wideout DK Metcalf to make an impression on Russell Wilson, as the star pivot had nothing but praise for the former Ole Miss standout.

"I think DK is looking really, really special. He can do anything and everything and he's tremendous," Wilson said, according to Curtis Crabtree of KJR-950 Seattle. "He really understands the game really well. He takes coaching well. He gets extra work. He's a legit pro wide receiver. He's everything that everybody was talking about in terms of what he's capable of and more."

Metcalf blew up the football world with a ridiculous performance at the NFL combine in February, leading many to speculate he'd be a top-15 pick in the draft. But the 6-foot-3, 230-pounder slipped as questions arose over his injury past and whether he could run a full route tree at the professional level.

Seattle traded back into the second round to grab Metcalf, an important move following the release of Doug Baldwin. If the 21-year-old can match the chemistry that Wilson had with his favorite target, the Seahawks may have netted the steal of the draft.
