Report: Cowboys Not Taking Myles Jack in 2nd Round

Jack tore his lateral meniscus during a UCLA practice last September


We still don’t know who the Dallas Cowboys are going to select in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft tonight, but per a report, we may know who they won’t draft.

According to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News, the team will not use the 34th overall pick on UCLA linebacker Myles Jack, a player who was once viewed as a high first rounder but who has fallen to the second day of the draft due to health concerns. Jack tore his right meniscus in a practice in September and could need microfracture surgery early on in his pro career.

“Since we're third, we want to be a little cautious about where we show our interest here,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Thursday, via the Morning News.

But Jones expects to leave the second round smiling.

“I like where we are,” Jones said. "We've really got four or five ways to go that I'll be smiling from ear to ear.”
