NFL Draft 2016: Jaguars trade up to select Myles Jack

The Jacksonville Jaguars swapped second round picks with the Baltimore Ravens and used it to pick phenomenal UCLA linebacker Myles Jack, whose stock fell due to a knee injury.

The good news is that Jack’s knee appears to be doing fine, especially after him posting a video to Twitter of him dunking a basketball and famed orthopedist Dr. James Andrews saying he would not need microfracture surgery. So long as he stays healthy, Jack should join first-round pick Jalen Ramsey in being part of a much-improved Jaguars defense.

Jack had 178 tackles (15 for a loss) with four interceptions and 19 pass breakups in his time with the Bruins, and is so athletic that the San Diego Chargers approached him about possibly playing safety.

Simply put, keep an eye on the Jaguars as a potential playoff team next year!
