WATCH: LSU WR D.J. Chark shows off incredible speed on 75-yard TD catch at Senior Bowl
The Senior Bowl is a chance for players to make a name for themselves ahead of the NFL Draft, and former LSU WR D.J. Chark is taking full advantage of that.
Chark has four catches for 147 yards and a touchdown late in the third quarter of Saturday’s game in Mobile, leading all receivers.
His biggest play was a thing of beauty, as you can see in the video below, shared by @themicknartin on Twitter. Chark gets free in the secondary and Richmond QB Kyle Lauletta hits him in stride, allowing him to show off his blazing speed for a 75-yard touchdown:
Look how his eyes are never on Chark, they’re on the safety but he knew Chark was open. This is rare stuff folks! pic.twitter.com/1XalscyE1X

Chark also has one carry for nine yards and made a tackle on special teams. It’s safe to say NFL coaches and scouts know who he is at this point, and it’ll be interesting to see how far he rises on NFL Draft boards in the coming weeks.
Could he go on Day 2 of the draft? That remains to be seen, but he’s making a strong case for it at the Senior Bowl.
