The Giants have removed linebacker Myles Jack from consideration for the No. 10 overall pick in the NFL Draft, NJ.com reported Wednesday.
The report cited two sources with knowledge of the team’s plans. Jack left UCLA last season after suffering a torn meniscus, and he’s been one of the draft’s most talked about players over the last several months due to his talent and the uncertainty with his knee.
Jack was busy on the pre-draft visit circuit and had several private workouts with interested teams, including one with the Jaguars, who own the No. 5 pick. Jack did not run a 40-yard dash during his workouts.
The NJ.com report cited unnamed league executives who projected Jack would be selected in the mid-teens. It also said the Giants have set their sights on Georgia pass rusher Leonard Floyd at No. 10.
