49ers hosting UCLA LB Myles Jack this weekend

Apr 9, 2016 at 11:09 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers will be hosting a number of visits this weekend at the team's headquarters in Santa Clara. One of the bigger names is UCLA LB Myles Jack, who is expected to be the first linebacker taken later this month in the NFL Draft. The report of the visit comes from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.


Jack is an elite talent that is rare for a player at his position. He can be an effective run defender or coverage linebacker. With some work, he could also develop into an effective pass rusher as well – something that he wasn't asked to do much at UCLA. He has the skill set and can play low enough to do it effectively. The 49ers hold the seventh overall selection in the draft.

During his pro day in Los Angeles, the 6-foot-1 and 245-pound Jack had a vertical jump of 40 inches and a broad jump of 10 feet, 4 inches.

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, who compares Jack to 49ers LB NaVorro Bowman, had this to say in his draft profile:

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.
