Kentucky DE Jeremy Jarmon was selected by the Washington Redskins in the third round of the 2009 Supplemental Draft, according to Pro Football Weekly.

The Redskins will now be forced to forfeit that pick in the 2010 NFL draft.

Jarmon is a former All-SEC defensive lineman who was expected to be in the mix as a potential first day prospect in the 2010 NFL draft. However, after testing positive for a banned substance, the NCAA ruled him ineligible for the 2009 season.

Representatives from 18 teams showed up to watch Jarmon at his pro day last Thursday and were not disappointed.

He ran his 40 yard dash in a time of 4.78 seconds, posted 19 reps on the bench and hit 31-inches on his vertical jump. More importantly, he was said to work out well during position drills and impressed teams during his interviews.
