Myles Jack has been a stud for the Jacksonville Jaguars since 2016.
This year, Linebackers Darius Leonard of the Indianapolis Colts and Tremaine Edmunds of the Buffalo Bills will represent the AFC in the Pro Bowl, and in all truth, both are deserving of the honor. Nevertheless, you could make the case that Jaguars linebacker Myles Jack could’ve gotten the nomination too.
This season, Jack has logged 105 total tackles (six for a loss), four pass deflections and one forced fumble. Moreover, he’s got a 70.8 Pro Football focus overall grade, which is better than Leonard’s 69 and Edmunds’ 45.4.
Keep in mind the Bills linebacker has the same number of total tackles as Jack, but hasn’t recorded an interception nor a fumble this season. In fact, his production is down from 2019, when he got his first Pro Bowl designation. Looking at his numbers, it’s possible that he earned the award based on his performance from last season and not this one’s.
The same is true for Leonard, who hasn’t registered an interception in 2020 and has only one more interception than Jack. He does have 109 total tackles but it wouldn’t be surprising if he made the Pro Bowl just in reputation alone.
