Myles Jack is falling down draft boards and being removed by some teams

The NFL held NFL medical rechecks this past week and two of the top linebackers learned bad news. One was Jaylon Smith and the other was UCLA pass rusher Myles Jack. According to Dane Brugler, Jack is no longer on all 32 NFL teams big boards.

I have no clue where you should put Myles Jack in your mock. I don’t know how all 32 teams feel about his knee, but several teams are out.

The former UCLA star linebacker, who is considered one of the top prospects in the 2016 NFL Draft, sustained a season-ending knee injury in September and after a round of medical exams at the NFL Scouting Combine in February, Jack was among the players who were asked to return this week for further examination.

Two sources briefed on those exams told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport there were “differing opinions,” on Jack’s progress from a meniscus tear, with some NFL teams concerned that the healing process hasn’t gone fast enough. Other clubs, per Rapoport, have no such concerns.

Could Myles Jack fall out the top 10?
