Sidney Jones, a cornerback from Washington who was projected to be a top 15 pick in next month's National Football League draft, suffered what is being described as a "significant" leg injury during his pro day Saturday in Seattle.

Washington cornerback Sidney Jones is carted out of the Dempsey.

Jones chose to forgo his senior season and declare for the NFL Draft after the completion of his junior season with UW in 2016.

Should Jones' injury be as significant as local reports say they are, he could potentially miss his entire rookie season.

Sidney Jones, a top cornerback prospect in this year's draft, appeared to injure his left leg during his final drill of the day.

During what was reportedly his last drill of the day Jones went down and was helped off the field by Washington head coach Chris Peterson.

Jones is often compared to Marcus Peters and not just because they both attended Washington. Jones has 8 career interceptions in his collegiate career, including two last season as quarterbacks often avoided throwing his way.
