Draft Scout DJ Chark News
03/03/18 - 2018 NFL Combine, Saturday: All due respect to DJ Moore, the DJ making the most sweet music this week among receivers is LSU's DJ Chark, who not only wowed scouts with a Combine-best 4.34-second timing in the 40-yard dash and 40-inch vertical, he also ran crisp routes and caught the ball cleanly. So, too, did fellow former SEC star Christian Kirk, who was clocked at 4.47 seconds in 40 yards after weighing in at 201 pounds. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftscout.com
02/27/18 - 2018 NFL Combine: Athleticism Key for these Prospects: DJ Chark, WR, LSU...This year's Will Fuller? Chark had an up-and-down LSU career, but his ability to stretch the defense with speed and sudden feet should translate to big numbers at the Combine. Fuller ran a 4.31 and vaulted into the first round; it wouldn't be a surprise if Chark had a similar ascension. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
01/27/18 - Top 15 Senior Bowl Performers: 9. DJ Chark, WR, LSU...With the erratic passing game at LSU, Chark couldn't consistently show off his athletic skill-set in college. However, that wasn't the case in Mobile, making several big catches up and down the field. He is clearly unrefined in some areas, but his speed and body control allow him to make easy adjustments on the football. Chark's draft arrow is pointing up. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
01/27/18 - WR DJ Chark explained that he felt LSU receivers were underrated and that their relatively meager production -- at least in comparison to receivers playing in more pass-friendly offenses -- was simply a function of the Tigers' run-heavy attack. Chark certainly backed up that claim in the Senior Bowl, leading all receivers with five catches for 160 yards -- more than he ever generated at LSU -- including a splashy 75-yard touchdown in which he twirled and high-stepped the final yards despite a defender in close proximity. Chark showed terrific burst and balance to shake free on the post-corner route that led to his touchdown, and possesses the combination of straight-line speed, size and versatility (he is also a terrific returner) to be in the conversation as the top senior receiver prospect in the 2018 draft.
01/24/18 - Senior Bowl Wednesday: Oklahoma State's James Washington has proven the most polished of the receivers in this year's Senior Bowl over the first two days of practice, showing body control and strong hands to make contested grabs look easy, and also running reliable routes. Teammate Marcel Ateman has also enjoyed a solid week, using his 6-4, 216-pound frame to box-out cornerbacks. In terms of physical upside, however, perhaps the most intriguing pass-catcher for the South Team is another former LSU Tiger -- DJ Chark. His blend of size (6-2 5/8 and 196 pounds), straight-line speed and strong hands stands out. Chark, a dynamic returner for the Tigers, made one of the more difficult catches of Wednesday's practices, bending his knees and extending his arms out in front of him to snare a punt just inches from the ground, securing it and accelerating in one fluid motion. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
