Redskins Coach Discusses Jeremy Jarmon's 2009 Role

Jarmon has signed his first professional contract, and it looks like he's going to spend the season learning.  I'm surprised by this considering the lack of proven talent possessed by the other defensive linemen on WAS' depth chart (aside from $100 million man Albert Haynesworth and recent first round pick Brian Orakpo).

"I want to be surprised if he has impact this year," says Zorn. "I'm looking at him as a guy we got a year early, so we can develop and be that much further ahead. When the NFL Draft comes around next year, he'll already have a year under his belt. He won't be preparing for his first camp."

Think about how Jarmon's situation turned out.  He'll spend next year essentially conditioning and learning a playbook while getting paid an NFL salary instead of being the (unpaid) B.M.O.C.  He's basically in the NFL one year early with third round money instead of first round money, considering many experts projected him a late first round pick in 2010.
