Ed Werder: Myles Jack knee ‘more troubling’ than Jaylon Smith

UCLA linebacker Myles Jack stumbled out of the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft and it mostly had to do with his knee problems. It looks like his knee is going to be a big factor on when or even if he gets drafted this weekend.

ESPN’s Ed Werder reported that Jack has fallen because teams are worried about his injury and one member of the NFL medical personnel said that it doesn’t look good for him.

In comparison to Notre Dame Jaylon Smith, who’s knee may keep him out his entire rookie season, Jack’s future for his knee looks pretty grim.

This could end up being terrible for Myles Jack. He is more than likely able to play in the 2016 season, but it is just a matter of time before his knee actually gives out.

It is unlikely that Jack falls into Day 3 of the NFL Draft, but a lot of teams may be turned off by him because of this grim news.
