Former UCLA linebacker Myles Jack’s knee has raised concerns with several NFL teams after medical rechecks did not go well, according to a tweet from Dane Brugler of CBS Sports.
I've been trying to brace my fellow Myles Jack fans for this…
His rechecks did not go well for several teams. Longterm question marks.

Jack tore his meniscus last September and appeared in just three games in 2015. He has been cleared to play by a number of doctors, but the fact that there are question marks surrounding the long-term health of his knee is disconcerting to hear just two weeks ahead of the NFL Draft.
And from a numbers standpoint, Jack should be a Top 10 pick, if not better than that. He left UCLA with 178 tackles, four interceptions and 19 pass breakups, and moves more like a safety than a traditional linebacker. That type of athleticism is a rarity.
But knee injuries are no joke and the fact that so many teams have concerns over Jack’s could surely affect his overall draft stock.
