Jack is widely regarded as one of the most talented defenders in the nation and he has even drawn comparisons to all-time great Derrick Brooks in a recent evaluation from ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper Jr.
“Size is there, 240 pounds, strong lower half, still learning. Tackles and covers. Derrick Brooks type,” Kiper Jr. stated on Twitter.
The current recovery time for Jack’s torn meniscus is 4-6 months.
With his decision to declare for the NFL Draft, Jack has made it clear that he wants his main focus to be fully recovering from the knee injury before preparing for draft season.
