The Jacksonville Jaguars went to visit Myles Jack on Saturday night and reportedly put him through some drills to see if he tested out well enough to invest the No. 5 overall pick in him.

The video was apparently a response to Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News, who said he heard from an NFL source that Myles Jack's knee was a "time bomb" that would only give him a ceiling of a player like Jonathan Vilma -- great for six or seven years at a high level but not much after that.
Um, please give me Jonathan Vilma for six or seven years, Jaguars.
Never mind the fact that six or seven years at a high level would be something only a handful of Jaguars first-round picks have accomplished, but looking at these drills you wouldn't guess there are major injury red flags for most (if not all) teams.
