Draft 2017

Pick No.222

Selected By: Jacksonville Jaguars

Round: 7

Pick (Overall): 4 (222)

Pick Analysis: The last two seasons, Myrick has not gained enough votes among league coaches or media members to achieve more than honorable mention status. However, scouts know that his game is a good fit for the NFL. The former Georgia state runner-up in the 100 meters came up big for the Gophers as a senior, making 41 tackles, 3.5 for loss, and leading the squad with 12 passes defensed (one interception, 11 pass breakups). He had a bit of a scare in his junior year, suffering a collapsed lung while being tackled on a kick return (1,052 career yards, one score as a returner). Myrick wound up playing in 10 games and starting seven that year (27 tackles, seven TFL, two PBU). He contributed mostly on special teams in his first season in Minnesota (four tackles) before getting significant playing time as a reserve corner the following year (21 tackles, one for loss, seven pass breakups) -- Myrick even returned an interception 31 yards for a touchdown that season.
