Myles Jack: Fall out of first round was ‘humiliating’
Myles Jack was one of the prospects in the NFL Draft green room for the first round on Thursday night, but he fell out of the first round. What’s that like?
Jack appeared on Monday’s Rich Eisen Show and described the experience as “humiliating.”
“It was, honestly, humiliating,” Jack admitted, via College Football 24/7’s Chase Goodbread. “It was embarrassing having to sit there, and afterwards walking out, having my girl to my left, my mom to my right, my grandmother to the right of her and having to look at them, it was a tough feeling,” Jack said. “It wasn’t a good night, truthfully.”
After that experience, Jack elected not to return for the second night of the draft, and it’s hard to blame him. He was eventually selected in the second round by the Jaguars at No. 36, and he’s using it as motivation.
“It’s all motivation and I actually appreciate it,” Jack said. “It’s made me hungry. It’s grounded me a lot.”
Jack’s fall was the result of a serious knee injury that the linebacker said may eventually require microfracture surgery. He says he will report to rookie minicamp on Thursday with no lingering limitations from the injury.
