    At least three NFL scouts said that if Jarmon would have been able to return to Kentucky for his senior year he had a chance to be drafted in the first two rounds of the 2010 draft.


    In three years for the Wildcats, the 6-foot-3, 279-pound defensive end recorded 17½ sacks, third-most in school history. The past two years he also had 23½ tackles for losses. Jarmon also dropped into pass coverage at times last season and had six pass breakups.

    He was chosen second team All-Southeastern Conference the past two seasons.

    Eagles have alkready looked at the kid - I say throw fifth rounder out there at him

    like in 07 when Gaither was in the supplemental draft - hes the Starting LT for Balt at 6'9" #330

    Gaither declared for the NFL's supplemental draft and on July 12 was taken by the Baltimore Ravens in the fifth round.

    he could have been Flo's replacement

    Kid made a terrible mistake. I saw his press conference, the kid was balling because he let himself and his teammates down. He wouldve been first team all SEC on the d-line with Terrence Cody from Bama. Wacth that kentucky defense suffer tremendously. I'd take a chance on him.

    NCAA-ineligible Jarmon to enter NFL
    By Joe Schad
    ESPN.com

    Kentucky defensive end Jeremy Jarmon, ruled ineligible by the NCAA for testing positive for a banned substance, confirmed Monday morning that he will enter the NFL's supplemental draft on July 16.

    Jarmon will have a pro day in Lexington on July 9. Kentucky now has no defensive ends on its roster who have made a college tackle.

    Jarmon has told NFL teams what he tested positive for, though he declines to disclose it publicly.

    "I told the NFL teams that have called that I don't even have a speeding ticket," Jarmon said. "If they take me they're not going to have any off-the-field problems."

    Jarmon, who was driving to a training facility, will fly to Philadelphia on Tuesday for a meeting and a physical with the Eagles on Wednesday.

    NFL teams will bid via e-mail and the team that is willing to sacrifice the highest pick in next year's draft will get Jarmon.

    Jarmon has selected Jimmy Sexton as his agent.

    Ex-Kentucky DE Jarmon tops early list for supplemental draft

    June 10, 2009

    NFLDraftScout.com

    Central Michigan guard Joe McMahon, Florida State wide receiver Corey Surrency and Kentucky defensive end Jeremy Jarmon have sent in their paperwork to be included in the NFL's annual supplemental draft on July 16, NFLDraftScout.com has learned.

    Jarmon is considered the only lock to be drafted, though McMahon and Surrency offer enough upside to warrant a close look by NFL teams.

    The 6-foot-3, 279-pound Jarmon was named an Honorable Mention All-SEC selection last season by the Associated Press after registering 38 tackles, 10 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks as a junior. Those numbers pale in comparison to Jarmon's career highs from a year earlier, when he had 62 tackles and 13.5 sacks.

    Jarmon ranks third all-time at Kentucky with 17.5 career sacks and had been within striking distance of Oliver Barnett's 26 had he not tested positive for a banned substance during the spring.

    The banned substance, reported by multiple websites to be an over-the-counter dietary supplement, led to Jarmon being suspended for one season, which exhausted his eligibility because he redshirted as a freshman. UK's appeal of the suspension was denied.

    A veteran of 31 career starts, Jarmon has already graduated with a degree in political science and is highly recommended by the UK staff despite the suspension.

    Jarmon considered leaving after his junior season, applying to the NFL Advisory Committee and receiving a fourth- to fifth-round grade.

    Eagles to take a look at Kentucky DE Jarmon
    June 9, 2009

    Associated Press

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Former Kentucky defensive end Jeremy Jarmon is expected to work out for the Eagles in hopes of being selected in the NFL supplemental draft.

    Jarmon acknowledged in May he had been declared ineligible for his senior season by the NCAA because he tested positive for a banned substance. He said the result came from a dietary supplement, but has not publicly disclosed the substance.

    The NCAA penalty for testing positive is the loss of one year of eligibility, effectively ending Jarmon's college career.

    He was expected to arrive in Philadelphia on Tuesday evening to work out on Wednesday.

    Jarmon has graduated from Kentucky with a political science degree. He'll also hold a pro day workout on July 9, one week before the supplemental draft on July 16.

    Any team that makes a pick in the supplemental draft will forfeit a corresponding pick in the 2010 draft. If the Eagles were to use a fourth-round pick on Jarmon, for example, they would forfeit their fourth-round pick in the 2010 draft.

    Jarmon told a Kentucky newspaper that he has told NFL teams what the positive test was for and said they should have no worries about taking him.

    "I told the NFL teams I called that I don't even have a speeding ticket," Jarmon told the Lexington Herald-Leader on Monday. "If they take me, they are not going to have any off-the-field problems."

    The Eagles did not bolster their defensive line through the draft or free agency this offseason. They also have nine picks in the 2010 draft, including an extra third-round pick from Seattle, an extra fifth-round pick from New Orleans, an extra sixth-round pick from Indianapolis and a pick to be determined from the New York Jets.

    At least three NFL scouts said that if Jarmon would have been able to return to Kentucky for his senior year he had a chance to be drafted in the first two rounds of the 2010 draft.

    In three years for the Wildcats, the 6-foot-3, 279-pound defensive end recorded 171/2 sacks, third-most in school history. The past two years he also had 231/2 tackles for losses. Jarmon also dropped into pass coverage at times last season and had six pass breakups.

    He was chosen second team All-Southeastern Conference the past two seasons.

    The Eagles' current group of defensive ends include Pro Bowl player Trent Cole, veterans Juqua Parker and Victor Abiamiri, pass rusher Chris Clemons and second-year player Bryan Smith, who did not play as a rookie.

    Jarmon's appeal denied

    ESPN.com news services

    LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Kentucky Wildcats defensive end Jeremy Jarmon was ruled ineligible for his senior season by the NCAA because of a failed drug test.

    He said at a news conference Saturday he had inadvertently taken a banned substance that turned up positive during a random NCAA test in February. An appeal was denied, in effect ending his college football career.

    Jarmon did not identify the substance and took no questions.

    Jarmon took the supplement while recovering from a shoulder injury and was not taking part in activities. He had been taking the supplement for 15 days before checking with the training staff, who told him to stop taking it.

    "But it was too late," Jarmon said, reading from a prepared statement.

    Jarmon said his goal in the offseason was to become leaner. He bought a dietary supplement while shopping for vitamins on the recommendation of a worker at a nutrition store, not knowing that it contained a banned substance.

    "I do not need to cheat to be successful," he said.

    Jarmon has the third-most sacks in Kentucky history. He was an honorable mention on last season's AP All-Southeastern Conference Team. He already has earned his bachelor's degree in political science, and coach Rich Brooks said in a statement that Jarmon wanted to address the incident in public and "apologize and explain."

    "My first concern is with Jeremy and his family and what a devastating blow this is for them," Brooks said. "There was no intent by Jeremy to do anything improper, it was an error in judgment in not checking with our staff [before taking the supplement]. Jeremy has been an outstanding individual on and off the football field, and I hope that people understand the class act he has has been."

    Brooks added that Jarmon was preparing to study in France as he worked toward a second major.

    Athletics director Mitch Barnhart had hoped the NCAA would consider "extenuating circumstances" in Jarmon's case.

    "The NCAA rules are the rules that we all live by and they're consistent, based on precedent and we've got to honor this," Barnhart said. "It may not always feel right, but there is precedent and it is consistent."

    Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

    I have to agree, Jarmon seems more like a 4-3 DE... a bit small for a 3-4 DE, and those 40 times suggest he'd have trouble covering anybody as a 3-4 OLB...

    I don't see anything in this supplemental draft so far that should pique the Boys' interest... unless the staff thinks that Jarmon could put on another 15 pounds without losing his quickness... I have no idea what growth potential the guy has...
