New York Giants Rumors: Not interested in Myles Jack

With the NFL Draft less than 24 hours away, recent New York Giants rumors have been about who they will be selecting in the first-round.

There have been a few names linked to the Giants with the 10th pick, but one player that we can cross off of their board is Myles Jack. According to, the Giants are very worried about Jack’s knee which was surgically repaired last year, and they are unwilling to take a risk with the 10th pick.

At his March the 15th Pro Day, Jack was impressive with a 40-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-4-inch standing broad jump, but he did not run the 40 and only took part in some positions drills. This is following an early-week report that he had a chondral defect in his knee that had teams anxious.

On the morning of the draft, Jack revealed to the New York Post that his knee could require microfracture surgery down the road. Who knows how long Jack's knee will hold up, but he'll be an impact player for as long as he's healthy. The teams they will face twice a year have very talented players on the offensive side of the ball.

The Detroit Lions don't have a significant need at linebacker, but any team would normally jump at adding a talent like Jack. That said, general manager Dave Caldwell said Ngakoue will be asked to come in and contribute early on.

"When I went down there the running back coach tried to pull me aside", Jack said, "but the linebacker coach wasn't going for it". Conversely, if bettors believe Jack will fall out of the top 8, then they would place a wager on the "over". Arguably the best defensive player in the NFL Draft, Jack's draft stock has been derailed by a troublesome knee.

"[The degenerative problems are] there, but it's nothing extreme", Jack said to Hubbach. Some are anxious about the potential of nerve damage with Smith's injury, which would seem to indicate that they would be more willing to pass on him in the 2nd round of the draft.

Jack agreed the workout with Jacksonville went well. He also said the Jaguars will be careful with Jack because of his knee and conditioning. "That was the first time since I was six years old that I didn't play football in the fall".
