Myles Jack admits he has a knee issue and could need surgery down the road

Are the reports about Myles Jack's knee a ploy to make him drop in the Draft?

Myles Jack admitted he has a knee injury and could require surgery down the road

People are out to make Myles Jack drop in the NFL Draft, but the former UCLA prospect is keeping a level head.  Today in an interview with the NY Post, Jack was asked about his knee and he was very honest and upfront. He did not have to discuss his health problems but he was very upfront with one of the biggest newspapers in the United States.

“[The degenerative problems are] there, but it’s nothing extreme,” Jack said at an NFL event for prospects at Grant Park. “Down the line, possibly I could have microfracture surgery — potentially. Who knows what will happen?

“Nobody knows how long anybody is going to play in this league. To play three years in this league would be above average.”

Knowing teams will be reluctant to use a high first-rounder on a player who might last just three or four years, Jack said he won’t hold any grudges if he lingers in the green room Thursday.

“I would understand if I fell,” Jack told The Post. “This is a talented draft class, so if I was to fall, I wouldn’t take it personally.”

Jack admitted he has a knee injury, but I love his response.
