Former UCLA linebacker Myles Jack was expected to be taken in the first round of the NFL draft. He was not selected Thursday, however, thanks in part to concerns about a knee injury that cut short his final season of college.

On Friday, Jack tweeted out a video of him dunking a basketball, likely an effort to show his knee is indeed healthy and he is worthy of getting selected in the second round.

If and when he does get drafted, he won't be in the green room, as a source tells ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that Jack will watch Friday's festivities from a Chicago hotel room.

Jack's tactic is similar to that of Pittsburgh Steelers running backLe'Veon Bell, who earlier this week tweeted a video of himself dunking, afew months after he underwent knee surgery that cut short his season.
