Kentucky's junior defensive end Jeremy Jarmon was the only selection in the mid-July supplemental draft. He was taken in the third round by Washington. The Redskins now forfeit their 2010 third round pick. Jarmon declared for the draft after he was ruled ineligible for his senior year because of a failed drug test. He had a positive test for a banned diuretic dietary supplement he purchased at a health food store. Jarmon has graduated with a degree in political science. Prior to his suspension, he decided to return for his senior year after a mediocre grade report from the NFL evaluation committee. The athletic defensive end is a good fit for the 'Skins' 4-3 scheme as he played left end for the Wildcats and at times was reduced inside to play defensive tackle. Productive over his career, he had 17 1/2 sacks in three years. He was red-shirted his freshman year for development and started 31 of 38 career games. Jarmon has been timed under 4.80 seconds in forty yards and shows first step quickness with 1.64 seconds in the 10.
THE WAY WE SEE HIM: Has all the athletic numbers and production to succeed on the next level. Thick build and butt to stack double teams. Needs more upper body strength to lock out and separate from long-armed offensive tackles. Question his instincts. Loses ball on occasion. Can bend his knees and get push and play with leverage. Needs to be under control when stunting and twisting. Flashes production, but will run by ball carrier. Does an excellent job of getting his hands up when rushing the passer. Has batted down several passes over his career. In 2008 he was second on the team in pass deflections. Can improve his hand strength and his use of hands to disengage blocker. Flashes the tools to play on Sundays, but needs to be more consistent as a tackler, backside pursuit effort, and first step quickness. Solid third round pick.
