Packers pass on secondary draft

Washington takes the only player selected in the Supplemental Draft: Kentucky DE Jeremy Jarmon, at the expense of a third-round pick in 2010.

The Green Bay Packers did not select a player in the Supplemental Draft for the 11th consecutive year.

The Washington Redskins were the only team to draft a player, yielding a third-round draft pick in the regular 2010 draft to select Kentucky defensive end Jeremy Jarmon.

The 6-foot-3, 278-pound Jarmon, who ranks third in school history with 17 sacks in three seasons, worked out for NFL scouts last week. Packers director of college scouting John Dorsey was in attendance.

Passing on Jarmon — who filed for the Supplemental Draft after being ruled ineligible for his final season at Kentucky after failing a drug test — signals the Packers are happy with their defensive ends, a position they upgraded with first-round pick B.J. Raji, sixth-round pick Jarius Wynn and undrafted rookie Ronald Talley.

The Packers selected Mike Wahle with a second-round pick in 1998.
