The Washington Redskins scored the only player selected in the 2009 supplemental draft, Jeremy Jarmon, a defensive end from Kentucky. 

At 6'3" and 276 pounds, Jarmon is a big physical presence that might be able to step in and produce at the NFL level.

He was not allowed to return for his senior season in one of the most unfair rulings regarding the NCAA's banned substance policy. He denied any intent to use the supplement to "cheat" and has never before had trouble with legal or NCAA policies.

Jarmon should provide even more value to the already enhanced defensive line of the Washington Redskins, as he joins newcomers Brian Orakpo and Albert Haynesworth.

The Eagles were also interested in Jarmon and it is unclear if the Redskins trumped their blind bid and if so to what degree, but the Skins surrendered a 2010 third round draft choice for his services.  Both teams held private workouts with him.

In his pro day, Jarmon ran a 4.76 second 40-yard dash and benched 225 pounds 19 times. He was impressive in his positional exercises and overall agility measures. 

Jarmon is anticipated to play defensive end as he did at Kentucky, with the ability to slide inside to a tackle position.

At Kentucky, he racked up 17 sacks in three seasons and was an imposing player. He was thought to be a high round draft pick in the 2010 NFL draft.
