  • myles jack could require surgery

    UCLA LB Myles Jack admitted he's not sure if he'll need microfracture surgery at some point.

    Speaking about his degenerative knee condition, Jack said, "It's nothing extreme. Down the line, possibly, I could have microfracture surgery -- potentially. Who knows what will happen?" Jack added that "to play three years in this league would be above average." That's obviously not what NFL front offices want to hear. Teams don't draft players in the top 10 hoping they'll play three years. Jack may have more natural talent than any player in this draft, but his health remains a huge question mark.

    He could be available at 13....just saying...should we draft Jack and Jaylon Smith - we would have the best all injured team for this year....but when healthy - the best LB duo

    Stay away from players with an injury history.

      we are rebuilding....

      Doesn't that mean taking the best players available and building for the future....Tanny and Grier have said multiple times we are not 1 person away....

      So stack the box with Myles and Jaylon (4th and 5th) round picks

      I am not saying use a 1st or 2nd or 3rd....maybe a 3rd on Jack

        Annoying that we can't embed tweets...

        Anyway, here is a video of Jack dancing from a week or so ago...

          I would take Jack at #13 and not look back.

            Mike Mayock has Jack going to the Raiduhs. If he's at 13 we take him.

              Agreed. To me this very similar to Ajayi from last draft.

              Yes, Jack has a knee injury, but no, it's not going to keep him from competing in camp or starting the season unless another injury occurs. He's competed in the Bruin's pro day and posted some of the best numbers of anyone that was at the Combine this year.

                Ok withm4th and 5th round picks but not 1st and 2nd. Please God let us pick Lawson or Apple or Conklin or a healthy value pick!

                  I would NOT draft an injured player, period. The Dilphins need to learn from there mistakes. Jaylon is the 3rd round or later is one thing but to use a HIGH 1st round pick on an injured player is not in the best interest of the team (See : Dion Jordan)

                    Does anyone know if we have the same medical team still working that did the Brees/Culpepper evaluation? Because if we do be very afraid.

                      I think the smokescreen by the Gmen are that they would not touch him. In reality they want him.

                        I thought don't remember Jordan being injured, just a dope fiend.....

                        Jack will be fine. He's a top 5 talent at a position of need. He'll be ready for this season. People are worried about 3 or 4 years down the road. A lot can happen with advances in medical treatments/surgery's, if he indeed does have issues down the road, but that is speculative. Any player you draft could be out in 3 or 4 years due to injuries like concussions, knees, etc...

                          That's true but when a player comes into the league with medical problems the odds increase that those problems will get worse. The Dolphins can't afford to game on players with injuries, they already lost two draft picks on the Dion Jordan gamble. (Shoulder injury and drug addiction) Lets get a day one starter with no injury history. Lawson is my bet.

                        Why not just draft Darron Lee? Jack and Lee are similar kind of players and Lee doesn't have the injury history.
