"They're bold. They've been bold with Ndamukong Suh last year in free agency. This Mario Williams (free agency) move is a bold move. Why not be bold in the draft and move up a few spots for Myles Jack from UCLA?" Jeremiah said Tuesday night on NFL Network's "Path to the Draft". "They've got that front taken care of, why not go get a dynamic, impact player for the second level of your defense? Somebody that can cover backs and tight ends, he can blitz, you can do all kinds of stuff with Myles Jack, and I'll tell you he'd love to play behind that big defensive front."
Just how far the Dolphins would have to move up to secure Jack? Based on NFL Media mock drafts, the answer is three spots. Five analysts project Jack to be available with the No. 5 pick, and four of them have the Jacksonville Jaguars taking him there, including Jeremiah. Although Jack skipped drills at the NFL Scouting Combine due to knee injury rehabilitation, he remains one of the draft's elite prospects. In fact, one NFL scout recently said the former Bruins star is the best player in the entire draft. Jack is expected to be ready to fully participate in UCLA's pro day workout on March 15.
"That could be a great spot. You've got to prop up your quarterback, you've got to continue to make that big splash, that could be another direction (for the Dolphins)," Davis said.
