Jack has become a massively important part of the Jacksonville defense. The linebacker, who turns 24 on Tuesday, collected 107 total tackles in 2018 along with 2.5 sacks. He did it all despite a college knee injury that knocked him out of the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft and raised questions about his long-term health. He has answered those questions, and both Jack and the Jaguars are beneficiaries as a result.
