1. Myles Jack

It was not long ago that the Jacksonville Jaguars found themselves in the AFC Championship Game up against the New England Patriots. Jacksonville had one of the youngest and most explosive defenses in the league and was seemingly set up for years of playoff success.

The team did not return to the playoffs. Most of the standouts on that defense, such as Jalen Ramsey, are no longer with the team. The one player that is still there is Myles Jack, who gets overlooked for playing in Jacksonville.

Jack is one of, if not the, best linebackers in the league. He is playing out of this world this season and can make plays happen defensively for the Jaguars.

Jack has the best defensive grade among any linebacker in the NFL on Pro Football Focus. Jack has 41 combined tackles a sack and an interception this season.

Jack can get to the quarterback in designed blitzes but is at his best patrolling the field and disrupting things in the passing game. He is one of the best coverage linebackers in the league and also has that downhill motor to plug the running lanes as well.

The Pro Bowl snub was banged up prior to last week’s showdown against the Detroit Lions but he did play in the game and barring any setbacks should be good to go against the LA Chargers.
