Former UCLA linebacker Myles Jack is one of the most talented players available in the 2016 NFL Draft and he has the possibility of being a top five pick later this month. It looks like he is returning to one of his former childhood hometowns to make a visit ahead of the draft.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Jack is visiting the Atlanta Falcons today. Jack actually lived in Atlanta when he was a kid and has some connections with the team as his former defensive coordinator, Jeff Ulbrich, is the team’s linebackers coach.

The Falcons currently have the 17th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, so it is very unlikely the team would have the chance to take Jack without some kind of trade. Currently, Mel Kiper Jr. has Myles Jack going to the Jacksonville Jaguars at five in his latest mock draft.
Jack is certainly one of the most intriguing players in the draft this year, so it comes as no surprise that just about every team in the league is chomping at the bit to have a shot at selecting him.
