Former UCLA linebacker Myles Jack will not be able to take part in on-field drills when he heads to Indianapolis for the NFL Combine next week.

According to Josh Weinfuss of, Jack said he has not yet been cleared after tearing his lateral meniscus last September.

Jack has been able to return to running and cutting, but the full clearance isn’t expected until March. Jack said he will do the bench press and go through all team interviews and the medical check while at the Combine, but the on-field audition will likely have to wait until at least the Bruins’ Pro Day workout next month or later.

“Personally, I feel great,” Jack said. “The knee, I can do whatever I can do with the knee, running, cutting. It feels great. It feels like a new knee.”

Nevertheless,  the chance to examine the knee at the Combine will give teams a chance to ease, or confirm, concerns over Jack’s health moving through the draft process.

Jack is this year’s version of Shaq Thompson. A linebacker first that split time at running back as well during his college career. However, Jack may be the better pro prospect of the two and could be selected in the top half of the first round is his knee checks out.

    Myles Jack is a GREAT athlete ! His skill set is on tape, no need to get cute, any scout knows what he’s getting. Best path is for him to sit for now, let team doctors inspect the knee and plan on having your own private showing on UCLA day ! Write it Down……………………..And i’m Alum of the school “across town”…………………
