Myles Jack at 15?

    Read yesterday where the teams are reportedly getting colder on Myles Jack because of the possibility of him needing microfracture surgery in the near future (an admission from Jack himself). The article stated that his draft stock was really slipping.

    My question is would you be happy if we took him at 15 if he was there?

    No thanks. Want someone who won't be injured within 2 years.

    Teams aren't cooling. They've known this for months.

    Articular cartilage in the knee is the issue. That's a thin layer of cartilage that covers the bone and is between the bone and the meniscus. The tear will eventually fall off and there is no way to really repair the tear, so it will be bone on bone.....eventually. It could happen next week, next month, next year, or five years from now. The important thing is he hasn't needed the surgery yet.

    Jonathan Vilma had a similar injury coming out of Miami and he played seven great years while winning a Super Bowl in New Orleans.

    I'd take him at #15. Five years is longer than most coach/GM tenures.

    The upside is too great not to take him. I know we really can't afford to have another 1st round bust but we have plenty of ammo left to get a few hits.

    Too many team needs to take the gamble. Were we a play-offs team then take the chance but as we stand I'm out. Reckon he goes 20-31 somewhere.
