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. Perhaps in an effort to prove his knee is doing just fine, Jack took to Twitter earlier today to post a video of himself throwing down a smooth two-handed jam:

News was also released this afternoon that Dr. James Andrews told Jack he does not currently require micro-fracture surgery:
Dr. James Andrews, who examined Myles Jack in December, told the UCLA LB today that he does not need micro-fracture surgery.

As the NFL Draft continues to drag on, the selection of Jack becomes less of a gamble. If he's healthy, there's little doubt he has the talent to be a future All-Pro. Will Jack's video and Dr. Andrews' diagnosis be enough to convince a team that Jack worthy of a second-round pick? We'll have to wait and see.
