Ray Lewis was the cornerstone of the Baltimore Ravens for well over a decade. Being compared to Lewis as a linebacker is about as good as it gets.
But being called a “faster version” of Ray Lewis? That’s where things get dangerous.
That prospect? Former UCLA linebacker Myles Jack.
Jack is a potential first-round pick, even after he withdrew from UCLA in 2015 after suffering a knee injury. Jack has apparently recovered well from that injury, as the 6-foot-1, 240-pound linebacker registered a 40-inch vertical leap at the NFL Combine in February.
Jack certainly has a lot of potential, but comparing him to Ray Lewis is a BIG statement to make this early in his career. However, if you had to pick one guy in this year’s draft to compare to a future Hall of Famer, Jack is certainly one of the best picks to make.
