With the 83rd pick, the BALTIMORE RAVENS select
DJ CHARK, WR, LSU
After passing on him in the last round, I certainly did not expect to see him still here in the third.
Chark has incredible body control and top end speed. The first thing you notice about him is that he is always given a chance to go after the 50/50 balls and more often than not, he will come down with it. His tall frame and speed makes him a matchup nightmare, and his flashiness is possibly one of the best in this class. He can put a move on a defender and has made countless look foolish over the past few seasons. Chark has experience at kick returner and his speed and cutting ability will make him a strong contender for the Ravens returner job. He will do his work on special teams to start off, but i can see him developing into a solid number 2 receiver by the end of the season.
His route running needs improvement and he could do with putting on a few pounds of muscle, but I really like this receiver. He has the tenacity and playmaking ability we always see out of LSU receivers.
I always second guess myself with speedy receivers after the Perriman fiasco, but Chark looks very good. I had a chance to see him play in New Orleans in the first game of the year last season, and he was the only real threat in the Tigers passing game. He was always the number 1 target and showed great possession catch abilities on the short throws. He had one incredible downfield grab in that game that really kickstarted LSU's offense.
