 DJ Chark TSX Player News Log
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 - 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.
01/27/18 - 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
01/24/18 - 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
12/13/17 - 2017 ALL-SEC SECOND TEAM (COACHES): RS DJ Chark, LSU,...Offensive lineman Garrett Brumfield, defensive backs Donte Jackson and Andraez "Greedy" Williams, running back Derrius Guice, and wide receiver DJ Chark earned spots on the second team. Chark was selected to the second team as a return specialist. The senior led the league in punt return average with 11.7 per game. Chark totaled two touchdowns on punt returns this season with the most thrilling coming on a 75-yard return against Auburn to spark the Tigers to the largest comeback against an SEC team in Tiger Stadium history. - LSU Football
11/11/17 - Senior quarterback Danny Etling threw touchdown passes of 45 and 68 yards to wide receiver D.J. Chark to power No. 24 LSU to a 33-10 victory over Arkansas Saturday at Tiger Stadium. Running back Derrius Guice added 147 yards rushing yards and three second-half scores for the Tigers. Guice, who recorded his fourth 100-yard game of the season, scored on runs of 6, 33 and 1 yards. Chark entered the game leading the SEC with a 23.5-yard average on 25 catches, but he had not scored this season. On both of his touchdown receptions, Chark beat the Arkansas secondary by 5 yards and scored with ease. Etling finished 11-of-16 passing for 217 yards. Chark caught four passes for 130 yards. LSU (7-3, 4-2 SEC) scored touchdowns on its first three possessions of the second half to break open a 7-7 game to take a 26-10 lead. On the first two of those scores, Connor Culp hooked the PAT wide left. Guice got the first two scores, cutting back for a 6-yard touchdown and then hitting a big hole on the left side for a 33-yard score.

Arkansas (4-6, 1-5) scored on its first series of the second half with Connor Limpert's 38-yard field goal. But Etling connected with Chark on the 68-yard bomb eight seconds into the fourth quarter to ice the game. LSU controlled most of the first half defensively, not allowing Arkansas to run a play beyond midfield, until the final two minutes of the second quarter. Trailing 7-0, Arkansas had gained just 46 yards on its first five series, each of which ended with a punt. The Razorbacks were backed up again on their 14-yard line 5:25 before halftime, but quarterback Austin Allen engineered a 10-play, 86-yard drive that culminated in a 1-yard touchdown run by running back Devwah Whaley 12 seconds before intermission. - The Sports Xchange

11/07/17 - LSU WR D.J. Chark, a senior, used "great tracking and body control" on a fade route Saturday against Alabama, and he's a "coordinated athlete with hands," according to former NFL scout Ryan Hollern writing at @ITLScoutsNotes. - InsidetheLeague.com
10/30/17 - WR D.J. Chark has scouts' eyes because of his receiving, running and return abilities. He's the Tigers' leading receiver for the second consecutive season, has rushed for a touchdown and had his second punt return for a touchdown this season against Auburn, but didn't have a reception or a rushing attempt against Ole Miss. Chark has a modest 22 catches and a not-so-modest average of 24.2 yards per catch.
10/16/17 - OCT 16 SEC CO-OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: DJ Chark, WR/PR, LSU...Ignited Tiger Stadium with a 75-yard punt return for a touchdown early in fourth quarter that helped spark a dramatic LSU comeback in a 27-23 win over Auburn...Down 23-14, Chark hauled in a Aldan Marshall punt at the LSU 25-yard line, reversed field and went untouched for 75 yards for the score...Punt return was just part of big day for Chark as he led LSU with five receptions for 150 yards...All five of his catches resulted in a first down, and two came on third-and-11 and third-and-15 situations...Chark's punt return TD led to 13 fourth quarter points for the Tigers...Finished day with 233 all-purpose yards. - SEC Football
