Myles Jack may not need micro-fracture surgery after all?

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

One of the most interesting things to watch in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft outside of the Laremy Tunsil saga was the tumbling down the board of UCLA linebacker Myles Jack. It wasn't that big of a shock at a certain point that Jack completely fell out of the first round, as clearly a lot of teams had concern over issues with his knee. The Jacksonville Jaguars ended up picking Jalen Ramsey with their pick, but general manager Dave Caldwell did mention that Jack was still on their board and high on it. I don't know if the Jaguars would have picked him if Ramsey wasn't there, but with the start of the second round this evening he will be a name to watch, especially with this little nugget from ESPN's Adam Schefter.

On the surface this looks like huge breaking news, but in reality we don't know how big of news this really is. He could mean in the immediate, or he could mean in the future. The thing with Jack and needing micro-fracture surgery is that it was always something that might be in the cards, later on down the line.

With the Jaguars holding the No. 38 overall pick, it will be interesting to see if they pull the trigger on gambling on Myles Jack in the second round, because they are interested. If they do and you even only get four years of good play out of him, that's a damn good second round pick for a guy that's likely to be an impact player right out of the gate.
