LSU receiver D.J. Chark didn’t challenge John Ross‘ combine-record 4.22, but Chark has run the fastest 40-yard dash so far.

Chark ran a 4.34 on Saturday.

After training with four-time Olympic gold medalist Michael Johnson, Chark said he hoped to run in the low 4.4s and “anything faster than that would be an accomplishment.”

Chark’s college teammate, LSU cornerback Donte Jackson, also trained with Johnson in McKinney, Texas, and said he hopes to run lower than 4.27.

Alabama cornerback Tony Brown also has a track background and could run under 4.3.

  1. I have ran faster than that on a 45 degree decline. My brother (God rest his soul) ran WAY faster than me on a 90 degree decline.

  2. WoW Arizona has got to draft this guy and just target two OL men in round 3 with their two 3rd round picks. Arizona loves WR Christian Kirk but if he is gone in round 2 Arizona needs to take DJ Chark, guy has unreal measurables/athleticism at 6″3 200pds running a 4.34 40 with a 40in vertical jump, his potential is unreal. Arizona is going to both sign a free agent WR & draft a WR, in free agency I think they are going to push hard to sign 6″3 WR Marquise Lee (6″1 WR Mike Wallace is plan B in F/A) as a #2 WR with Fitzgerald a #1. Arizona also will have 6″2 Jaron Brown (4.41 40) & 5″11 JJ Nelson who is a burner with 4.25 speed. 2nd year 6″2/205pd WR Chad Williams (4.34 40) drafted in the 3rd round last season is going to have a big year this year playing a big role in his 2nd year and both of Arizona’s RB’s are basically wide-receivers as well in elite all-pro 6″2/225pd RB/WR David Johnson (4.48) who doubles as a truly elite WR and 5″10/200pd RB/WR TJ Logan w/ 4.35 speed who missed last year due to a broken wrist who the team is very high on will play a big role. Arizona will have a lot of weapons. Chark fits exactly what Arizona looks for in WR’s given his size and blazing fast speed, hopefully he is available at 47th overall if Christian Kirk is not.

  3. Someone break this record! I’m tired of being reminded the Bengals spent the
    #9 overall pick on a fragile slot receiver! Geez! :/
