UCLA linebacker Myles Jack is looking to make a name for himself in the NFL this year and he will likely end up being one of the first players drafted in Chicago next week. However, there seems to be some concerns for Jack when it comes to his knee.
During the 2015 season, Jack went down with an ugly knee injury early in the season, but he has been training hard to get back to full health. Despite this, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reported that one NFL source called Jack’s knee a “time bomb” and it could be years before it actually sets off.
NFL source calls Myles Jack "a time bomb" whose knee could give him several good years, or not. Bone and cartilage starting to break away.

This could be both good and bad depending on how you look at the situation. On one hand, Jack’s knee could implode just seconds into his first game and he could never play again, while on the other hand he could play for several years before it starts to take a huge toll on his body and the way he plays.
Myles Jack has proven that he can be a great player in the NFL and he is looking forward to getting his career started. He will continue to play at the same pace no matter what could happen to his knee.
