The Redskins bolstered their defensive line depth Thursday, selecting Kentucky defensive end Jeremy Jarmon in the third round of the NFL’s supplemental draft.
Washington, never known to hold on to future picks too tightly, will give up their 2010 third round pick for the right to select Jarmon.
Jarmon would have been a senior, but was suspended for testing positive for a banned substance. He has ideal pro size and could be a good run stopper.
Washington is thin at defensive end, so Jarmon could compete for significant snaps right away. Playing alongside Albert Haynesworth certainly won’t hurt Jarmon’s chances for making an immediate impact.
Jarmon is the first player selected in this year’s supplemental draft and potentially could be the last. Deon Murphy from Kansas State looks like the next most likely to be taken.
