Former UCLA linebacker Myles Jack says he’s looking forward to undergoing a medical re-check on his knee Thursday in Indianapolis, an evaluation that could have a major effect on his draft stock—and, potentially, the Dallas Cowboys' draft board.
Jack tore his meniscus in a non-contact drill in practice back in September.
"I'm really past rehab and everything," Jack said on SiriusXM NFL Radio on Monday, per the Dallas Morning News. "I'm just working on getting in shape right now. I'm not worried about these re-checks at all. I'm actually excited to clear all rumors if there's any questions, so it's definitely a big week for me."
While Jack hasn’t visited the Cowboys, he is still widely considered a top ten pick, despite the knee injury that brought his final season with the Bruins to an end in September. A number of mock drafts have put Jack with the Cowboys at No. 4 overall, but the general consensus seems to be they’re more likely to go with defensive end Joey Bosa from Ohio State.
For what it’s worth, the last player drafted by the Cowboys’ in the first round who did not make an official pre-draft visit was Morris Claiborne in 2012.
