UCLA’s Myles Jack is officially entering the draft labeled an outside linebacker, and is also considered the best one on the board.
However, his talents lend the team fortunate enough to draft him the ability to move him around to a multitude of positions including running back. Now, Jack may not be too keen on the idea of playing the position, but in a league which sees J.J. Watt take snaps at running back, it’s still an intriguing possibility.
A lot of draft experts have the Browns taking a quarterback with the second overall pick, but the Browns simply aren’t in position to bring a quarterback in. Josh McCown may not be an option past this season, but for now, he’s as serviceable as any quarterback in the draft and the team has many needs to fill.
Jack is an electrifying player with the flexibility to make a big impact on the team, this season and in the future. His medical checks went splendidly and he’s on track to perform at his pro day on March 15th.
If his performance matches his clean bill of health, there’s no reason he won’t go in the top-five, and with the Browns needing a talent which can immediately impact the team, it makes most sense for Jack to go to Cleveland.
