Myles Jack might not have to wait much longer to hear his name called at the 2016 NFL Draft.

The former UCLA linebacker was a projected top-10 pick at one point, but concerns about the health of his right knee and rumblings about a potential need for micro-fracture surgery have caused him to tumble out of the first round.
