If there is one team that needs an impending force at linebacker, it is the Chicago Bears. They have been missing that piece ever since Brian Urlacher retired and it seems they have been chatting up gifted UCLA linebacker Myles Jack.
According to the Chicago Sun Times, Jack actually visited the Bears on Thursday and it seemed to be a pretty good meeting between the two. There are certainly a lot of things to love about the linebacker and he should make an impact wherever he ends up.
It seems very unlikely that the Bears will have the chance to draft Jack, but general manager Ryan Pace is doing his due diligence, much like he did with Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota last season. Jack has proven that he can play all over the field and has a ton of versatility.
During his career at UCLA, Myles Jack played both linebacker and some running back, meaning he has the necessary speed and then some to be a dominant defensive player in the NFL. He scored 11 touchdowns on the ground and also recorded 178 tackles, 15 for loss, and four interceptions in that span.
The Bears would love to have Jack on their team, but it looks like the only that is happening is if they trade up to get him.
