Defensive end Jeremy Jarmon, selected by the Washington Redskins in the third round, was the only player picked in Thursday's NFL supplemental draft.

Jarmon, 6-3 and 278 pounds, was forced to enter the supplemental draft after being declared ineligible for his senior season at Kentucky because of a failed drug test, testing positive for a banned diuretic supplement.
By selecting Jarmon, the Redskins will be without a third-round pick in the 2010 NFL draft as well as a sixth-round pick (from the Jason Taylor trade). The Redskins say Jarmon is the first player they've ever taken in a supplemental draft.

There were eight former college football players eligible for the supplemental draft. The seven who were not selected could still be invited to training camp.

Since its inception in 1977, 37 players have been selected in the supplemental draft.
