Supplemental Draft is Over


The only player picked was Jeremy Jarmon and he went to Washington for a 3rd round pick. That's a bit early for him and has an air of desperation to it. Jarmon was 4th round value. The fact he's available right now and could impact the upcoming season probably seemed good enough that WAS went ahead and made the pick.

I haven't been able to confirm if the Eagles had any interest. Things are very quiet at the NovaCare Complex right now. It wouldn't surprise me to find out the Eagles were going to try and use a later pick on Jarmon.

One thing to keep in mind is that we have enough at LDE to be okay for the upcoming year. Long term? We don't know. That largely depends on the progress of Victor Abiamiri. The good news is that there are several LDE prospects in the upcoming draft class who could be of interest. I'm glad we didn't overbid for Jarmon at this point. There could be better players on the board in April. Only make that pick if you need to or the player is good value. Neither was the case for us at this point.

I guess we should hope Jarmon doesn't have as much potential as you think now, huh? LOL. Kidding. Kidding.
