A New Concept: Jeremy Jarmon

July 14, 2009

kentuckysupplementaldraftFor those of you who know what the Supplemental Draft is, here is a short little description on what it is. Here is a good little description of the Supplemental Draft via wikipedia (because we are not smart enough to write one ourselves. 🙂

In late summer, the NFL also holds a Supplemental Draft to accommodate players who did not enter the regular draft because they thought they still had academic eligibility to play college football. Draft order is determined by a weighted system that is divided into three groupings. First come the teams that had six or fewer wins last season, followed by non-playoff teams that had more than six wins, followed by the 12 playoff teams. In the supplemental draft, a team is not required to use any picks.

Instead, if a team wants a player in the supplemental draft, they submit a “bid” to the Commissioner with the round they would pick that player. If no other team places a bid on that player at an earlier spot, the team is awarded the player and has to give up an equivalent pick in the following year’s draft. (For example, FS Paul Oliver was taken by the San Diego Chargers in the fourth round of the Supplemental Draft in 2007; thus, in the 2008 NFL Draft, the Chargers forfeited a fourth-round pick.)

As of 2007, players who enter the Supplemental Draft usually are graded as players who should be drafted at a later round, or who have college eligibility problems (poor academic or discipline issues). Only 38 players have been taken since the NFL instituted the Supplemental Draft in 1977.

The Broncos have never, ever been involved in a Supplemental Draft but with all this change, maybe this would be the year to start. 

This year, a great Defensive End from Kentucky is going to be applying for the Supplemental Draft named Jeremy Jarmon. Jarmon was caught with an abused substance and therefore is not eligible for his Senior season so he has decided to apply for the Supplemental Draft. That said, he has never been involved in any other problems like this and actually is known for being very smart… or at least football smart. 

Jarmon has excellent bulk, is a reliable tackler and has a terrific motor. He has the size to play in either a 4-3 or a 3-4 and he shows the ability to get off of blocks very well. He also has great production at the college level and has done it against a lot of college footballs top competition. While most of his production involves sacks, he stuffs the run very well.

It has not been announced what pick we would have to give up for him, but it looks to be somewhere between rounds 4-6. It would probably be a 4th but could be less because of his strength which is very highly criticized by scouts across the country. He also doesn’t change directions well against the Offensive Line even though he does show the ability to shed blocks.

This probably won’t happen, but it is a new, interesting concept and the Broncos should definitely take a look at Jeremy Jarmon.

    I have liked Jeremy Jarmon for so long and he would be a great addition to any team that is willing to draft him.

      That’s what all injured players have to do so they can keep up with their status.
