Myles Jack Drafted By Jacksonville Jaguars

Apr. 29 -- After falling out of Round 1, former UCLA linebacker Myles Jack was selected by in Day 2 of the NFL Draft...

After slipping out of the first round, Myles Jack finally came off the board Friday to the Jacksonville Jaguars, who hope they have landed a steal with the 36th overall selection in the 2016 NFL Draft.

The Jaguars traded up a couple spots to take the former UCLA linebacker and many had projected Jacksonville to choose Jack with the fifth overall pick in the first round.

Jack was in the green room Thursday expecting to be drafted, but wasn't in attendance Friday. Earlier in the day he sent out a video on his Twitter showing him dunking a basketball, perhaps to provide visual that problems with the knee injury were overblown.

Jack played three games as a junior last season before suffering a torn meniscus and leaving the program. He was named the Pac-12 Offensive and Defensive Freshman of the Year in 2013 and earned a reputation as one of the best athletes in college football.
