The Jacksonville Jaguars announced Friday that they’ve signed second-round LB Myles Jack to a four-year deal.
Jack, 20, wound up being selected by the Jaguars with the No. 36 overall pick after they traded up in round two to get him. Many considered Jack to be a top-five talent in this year’s draft class, but concerns regarding long-term issues related to his knee injury led to him dropping out of the first round.
Even so, the Jaguars have maintained that they had him as a top-five player on their draft board, which means they managed to come away with two of their top-five players.
According to OverTheCap.com, Jack receives a four-year contract worth $6,334,442 to go along with a signing bonus of $2,806,868.
During his three years at UCLA, Jack recorded 178 tackles, 15 tackles for a loss, one sack, four interceptions, a forced fumble, two fumble recoveries and 19 pass defenses.
