LSU's DJ Chark runs fastest 40 among receivers at National Football League combine

Fantasy Football Breaking News

It's tough for an "undersized" defensive back to post truly impressive numbers at the NFL Scouting Combine. Why?

For a player with uneven game film, it's been a very rough time in Indy. There are several intriguing prospects who could be in play for Atlanta at the No. 26 spot in the draft, and the Falcons could also address the position in the latter rounds. He did exactly that. "They just don't know how fast". All the teams mentioned earlier could trade up with the Giants or Colts to jump Cleveland if one quarterback becomes the clear favorite. The big question mark surrounding him was his accuracy. His time of 4.70 seconds in the 40-yard dash ranked 57 among the defensive backs on Monday.

New Giants general manager Dave Gettleman is going to need to make addressing the offensive line a top organizational priority this offseason, and that could include investing the No. 2 overall pick in April's NFL Draft at the position. I like Bellamy, a lot, but it can't be ignored that he lost a lot of playing time this past year to D'Andre Walker.

The fastest 40 run at the combine by a player with Alabama football roots was turned in by Arizona Cardinals wide receiver J.J. Nelson (Midfield, UAB) in 2015, when he posted a 4.28. Averett now owns the 12th-fastest time.

Beyond that dominant duo is a quintet of players who showed out and vastly improved their draft stock. He checks all the boxes physically and has no off-field issues.

Ward checked in at just a hair under 5-foot-11 and 183 pounds, running the 40-yard dash in 4.32 second and posting a 1.48-second 10-yard split Monday in Indianapolis. The 10-yard split is important for defensive linemen because it measures their get off at the snap. Barkley's combination of size, speed, vision and agility have teams drooling at the top of the draft, and he erased any doubt that he'll be off the board in the top five.

Gesicki put on an athletic showcase. There is one school of thought emerging that the Browns could take the versatile running back at No. 1 and then pick up their quarterback when they are back up at No. 4. He can swing his hips and change direction nearly like a defensive back.

Strong and physical in the slot, Dawson is the type of player fans of Quandre Diggs will want to watch.

The run-stuffing defensive tackle showed he's also an athlete, and could have some untapped pass-rushing prowess in his game. His work in positional drills didn't help.

The questions with Rosen come in his injury history and what he'll do in the National Football League when plays break down. He's firmly putting himself in the conversation to be a Day 1 pick in next month's draft. The reason is simple: he might just be the best player in this draft. Both rank in the NFL's top 20 all time individually after having compiled a combined total of 248.5 career sacks.

Scout who liked Chark before the combine likely like him even more now.

In addition to the speedy run, Chark had a 40-inch vertical leap to lead the receivers. His 21 reps on the bench were the fourth most among all DBs.
