D.J. Chark is busy. He’s busy learning the playbook and busy learning multiple positions.

I’m everywhere,” Chark said Tuesday, via Mike Kaye of First Coast News.

The second-round pick, who ran a 4.34 in the 40-yard dash, is learning all three receiver positions and five special teams spots.

“[Special teams] coach Joe D [DeCamillis] has me at punt returner, kick returner, kickoff [coverage], punt [coverage], the gunner,” Chark said. “By the time we get to training camp, I’ll have more of a good idea of where I’ll be. I know I’ll be somewhere on special teams. I’m just trying to take all the knowledge that I get from these guys and bust my butt every time we get a special teams period, no matter where I’m at on the field.”

Receivers coach Keenan McCardell expects Chark to get plenty of work on offense this season, too.

“He is a very talented kid that loves to play football — very coachable,” McCardell said. “He gives you the speed that we’re looking for outside. I think he is going to have an opportunity to stretch the defense for us. I’m looking forward to it. [He offers] another pair of young legs that can run.”
