The Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver position is going to be a fun one to watch shake out, in part because it’s full of young exciting players. Veterans Marqise Lee and Donte Moncrief have been out of practice with minor injuries, which has allowed the young players to step up and shine.

One player in particular is Jaguars second-round pick DJ Chark, who turned heads with a fantastic practice on Wednesday.

“DJ Chark, that man is athletic. He has a baby face, but he plays like he is 30,” Jaguars Pro Bowl cornerback AJ Bouye said when asked about the rookie. “Him and Jalen [Ramsey] working [against each other], you love to see those matchups because you are going against the best in the game. If you see him do something like that to Jalen, you get excited. It is not only him, Keelan Cole has taken another big step. That wide receiver room has a lot of competition.”

Chark beat Ramsey a few times in Wednesday’s practice, including for a touchdown. He is a receiver a lot of fans were excited about, as LSU seems to have a track record of under-performing talented wide receivers becoming very good NFL players and so far Chark looks to be on that track.
