Myles Jack surprisingly slipped to the 2nd round of the NFL Draft due to a knee injury. Jack was the number one player on my draft board and appears to have a bright NFL career ahead of him if he can stay healthy. His former collegiate head coach Jim Mora was recently on the Rich Eisen show to discuss his former Bruin star linebacker.

“(Jack will) be the rookie of the year. You watch,” UCLA coach Jim Mora told The Rich Eisen Show on Friday. “He’s so motivated. He’s such a great athlete. He’s such a great player, such a hard worker. He has a passion for the game that’s unmatched.”

The Jaguars in my opinion had the best draft and were able to somehow snag the best two players. Coach Mora has no doubt that Jack can be one of the greatest players in today’s NFL.

“I have no doubt that (Jack) is going to be one of the great ones in this league,” Mora said. “I’ve been lucky to be around great athletes. I’ve been involved with 19 Hall of Famers. The greatest athletes I’ve been around in my career are Mike Vick, Julius Peppers and Myles Jack. That’s pretty good company right there. He could probably be a Pro Bowl running back or linebacker.”
