Alabama senior Center Barrett Jones announced he played the BCS National Championship Game with a Lisfraanc injury during a post game press conference after the game.
He’ll have surgery over the next couple of days, ruling him out for the upcoming Senior Bowl. It’s a surprise that Jones played through the injury considering how often it has ended players in the NFL’s season.
Barrett Jones is looked as a low first to high second round pick. I don’t believe the injury will effect his draft stock. The season is far enough away that he should be ready for the beginning of next season.
His leadership is and ability to play multiple positions on the line would make him a huge asset for any team that drafts him. Look for him to go to either the Packers late in the first or if he slips to the 36th pick, Lions to select in in the 2nd round.
