UCLA LB Myles Jack completed his medical recheck on Friday morning and there were reportedly "differing opinions" on his progress, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Rapoport stated that some teams were satisfied by the progress that he has made since his surgery in September to repair the lateral meniscus in his right knee while other teams thought the healing wasn't fast enough.

The teams that believe in Myles Jack (torn meniscus) likely won't be deterred by today's medicals. Others view his knee as a potential issue— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 15, 2016
The 6-foot-1 and 245-pound Jack is expected to be the top linebacker taken in this month's NFL Draft, with some mocks even having him fall to the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers select seventh overall.
Over his shortened college career of 29 games, Jack had 178 tackles with 15 for a loss, a sack, and four interceptions. The versatile Jack also also had 387 rushing yards on 68 carries and 11 touchdowns at running back.
Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, who compares Jack to NaVorro Bowman, had the following to say in his scouting report:
Upper echelon explosiveness with the desire, speed and aggression to find his way into play after play. While UCLA asked Jack to do a little bit of everything, an NFL team is more likely to simplify his tasks and set him into attack mode to maximize his outstanding physical traits. If he bounces back from the knee injury, Jack could become a high-end talent early on in his career.
