Bio: 
Two-year starter who led LSU with 40 receptions for 874 yards and tied for the team lead with three touchdown receptions in 2017. Earned Second Team All-SEC honors as a returner after scoring two punt-return touchdowns and received an invitation to the Senior Bowl. Tied for the team lead with three TD catches and caught 26 passes for 466 yards while rushing 12 times for 122 yards and two scores as a junior.
Pos: 
Developing wideout with big upside for the next level. Sells routes, uses his hands to separate from defenders and comes back to the ball out of breaks. Extends his hands to snatch passes away from his frame and keeps plays in bounds after the catch. Competes for contested grabs and physically beats down defenders to come away with receptions. Makes tough catches in contorted positions, displays quick, soft hands and snatches the ball from the air in stride. Uses the sidelines well, plays with balance and body control and has a next-level build. Effective downfield blocker.
Neg: 
Slow out of breaks. Plays like a one-speed receiver and does not show a second gear despite his 40 time.
Analysis: 
Chark showed consistent improvement at LSU, looked good at the Senior Bowl and turned in a sensational combine workout. He has the size and athleticism to grow into a very good No. 2 receiver if he continues to progress on the field.
