Myles Jack Shows Off Healed Knee At His Pro Day


UCLA linebacker Myles Jack got the day he's long been waiting for Tuesday.

He finally had his chance to show off his athleticism after a knee injury ended his college career. And show off Jack did.

After not competing at the NFL Scouting Combine, Jack moved well at his pro day, which was reportedly attended by all 32 teams.

Jack did not run the 40-yard dash, but recorded a 40-inch vertical and 10-foot-4 broad jump, according to NFL Media's Gil Brandt. The vertical jump would be tied for the eighth best among all combine participants this year.

"I feel great. I feel like I was 80 percent out there," Jack told NFL Media. "The knee feels great and everything; I've just got to get back in shape and get my conditioning right."

He will participate in another pro-day-style workout on April 1 at UCLA, where he's expected to run the 40-yard dash.

Jack has been projected to the Ravens at No. 6 overall by some draftniks. He would likely move into the spot opened by the release of veteran Daryl Smith, but could also play outside linebacker (or a multitude of other positions).

Jack tore his anterior meniscus after UCLA's third game of the season. He then withdrew from school days after announcing his intention to enter the NFL Draft. Jack has been rehabbing his knee and training in Phoenix ever since.

Jack only did the bench press (19 reps) at the NFL Scouting Combine. He received full medical clearance from his UCLA surgery to participate in his pro day, a good sign that he'll be ready to take the field once he joins an NFL team.

The 6-foot-1, 245-pound Jack is a dynamic talent who impacted the game in a variety of ways in college. He was primarily a linebacker, but also lined up in coverage in the slot and outside against wide receivers. He played a little safety and flowed all over the Bruins' defensive front.

He's so athletic that he also moonlighted as a running back. Jack averaged 7 yards per carry during his freshman season (38 carries for 267 yards and seven touchdowns). He was named the Pac-12 Offensive and Defensive Freshman of the Year.
