JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars selected UCLA linebacker Myles Jack with the 36th overall pick in the NFL draft, landing a speedy player with huge upside who is recovering from a serious knee injury.

Jack is a Bellevue High graduate.

If Jack returns to form, the Jaguars could have the steal of the draft.

Jacksonville traded up two spots to get Jack, who had been widely projected to go early in the first round. The Jaguars traded the 38th and 146th (fifth round) overall picks to Baltimore to grab Jack.

Jack tore the meniscus in his right knee on Sept. 23 and missed the remainder of the season. He left school in early October to rehab in Phoenix.

Jack said earlier this week that he could possibly need micro-fracture surgery down the road. The Jaguars examined his knee and worked him out a few weeks before the draft, and clearly didn’t have enough concerns to pass on him.
