DK Metcalf can chase down Budda Baker in the open field, but he still isn't quite Olympic fast.
At least he has his quarterback's support.

"To test my speed up against world class athletes like this," he said on the NBC broadcast. "Like I said, just having the opportunity to run against these guys was just a blessing."
Wilson wasn't the only NFL player to offer support:
According to Olympic Talk a 10.16 would have been good enough to qualify for the 2016 Games.
