After a rough ride the last few months, former Kentucky defensive end Jeremy Jarmon finally got some good news Thursday when he was taken in the supplemental draft by the Washington Redskins with a third-round pick.

It's unfortunate that Jarmon won't be able to play his senior season at Kentucky after being ruled ineligible by the NCAA for taking a banned dietary supplement, but he's going to a team that needs defensive line help.

And for the Redskins to use their third-round pick in the 2010 draft on him, that's proof they think a lot of him.

The real losers in this whole deal are the Wildcats, who have no experience at the end position entering the 2009 season.

I can tell you from talking with Jarmon soon after the announcement that he was ineligible that he feels as badly for Kentucky as he does anything. Remember, he put off turning pro early to come back for his senior season.

His case is a reminder to all college athletes to ask before you take anything.
