2018 NFL Draft Wide Receiver Rankings: From The College Perspective

By

3. D.J. Chark, LSU

6-3, 199: The high-riser in the offseason draft process, he started to answer a nagging question.

What could he potentially do on an offense different than LSU’s and with a strong quarterback getting him the ball?

Painfully underutilized, he was a terrific deep threat and was great when he got his chances – but he didn’t get enough of those shots – catching 66 passes for 1,351 yards and six touchdowns with four rushing scores over the last two seasons, averaging over 20 yards per catch.

And then came Indianapolis, and then came the 4.34 40 and the jaw-dropping 40″ vertical.

Okay, so he might be a one-trick receiver, but it’s a really, really good one – he’s amazing at getting deep, and for his look and tall, wiry frame, he’s seriously quick.

He won’t do much across the middle on a regular basis, and he’ll get pushed around a little bit, but with his speed, his size, and his upside – he might be just scratching the surface – he’s worth the chance as a difference-maker who’ll change around an offense.

Projected Round: First
Real Value: Second Round, Top 50 Overall
