The Jacksonville Jaguars have picked wide receiver D.J. Chark with the No. 61 overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Our friends at Mile High Miracle have the breakdown on Chark:

Buried on the Tigers’ depth chart the first two seasons in the Bayou, Chark started to emerge in his junior campaign and saved his best for last, racking up 874 yards on 40 catches as a senior. If you do the math, that’s almost a 22 yard per catch average — which is absolutely insane. Throw it up deep and somehow, someway. . . he always seems to come up with the clutch catch for big yards that changes the tone of the game.

Hails from a school known for producing NFL caliber talent at the position. Versatile prospect with experience on the outside and inside in the slot. Tall receiver with long arms and the hops to contest regularly on jump balls. Has the extra gear and “see you later” speed teams dream of. Routinely destroys off-man and zone coverage, and leaves opposing corners looking goofy with his incredible double moves. Strong hands and only dropped several passes his senior season. One of, if not the most explosive deep ball threats in this entire draft class. Bested one of this year’s top corners, Carlton Davis, in their match-up this season. Shined all week at the Senior Bowl and was the game’s co-MVP. Utilized effectively as a runner on jet sweeps that allow him to make plays in space and take advantage of his world-class speed and athleticism. Displays effort and open-minded attitude as a blocker. Last but not least, Chark offers dual-threat value as a prospect due to his returning ability.

Simple question — what grade are you giving the pick?
