There is no off-season. As reported by kentucky.com, Vinny and three Redskins staff members were in Kentucky today to take a look at University of Kentucky DE, Jeremy Jaron. The Philadelphia Eagles worked him out this past June, but decided to pass. Jaron decided to skip his Senior year after failing a test for a banned substance, which seems to be more common than I thought among the NCAA (Redskins defensive end J.D. Skolnitsky). Jarmon was quoted that the suspension was not an issue with NFL teams. Jeremy's accolades are impressive:
- All-SEC (first team) by Rivals.com (2007)
- All-SEC (second team) by SEC coaches (2007)
- Univ Kentucky Co-Most Outstanding Defensive Player (2007)
- SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week for the Vanderbilt game
"First you evaluate (Jarmon) on film, and if you like what you see on film then it brings you down for the workout," Cerrato said. "It gives you a chance to see him move around and see him athletically, and you get to talk to him, his coaches and trainers and find out all the background information."
"I think he worked out well," Cerrato said. "He ran well and was in good shape. He needs to get a little stronger, but he represented himself well. He's a great kid, solid in the locker room, he's smart. He's got all of the intangible things."

We all are pretty aware that the Redskins prefer to use late picks or free agents to fill holes in both sides of the line. Orakpo was certainly a gift. Do we have any Hogs Haven readers that have watched Jarmon play?
