Kentucky defensive end Jeremy Jarmon, ruled ineligible by the NCAA for testing positive for a banned substance, confirmed Monday morning that he will enter the NFL's supplemental draft on July 16.

Jarmon will have a pro day in Lexington on July 9. Kentucky now has no defensive ends on its roster who have made a college tackle.

Jarmon has told NFL teams what he tested positive for, though he declines to disclose it publicly.

"I told the NFL teams that have called that I don't even have a speeding ticket," Jarmon said. "If they take me they're not going to have any off-the-field problems."

Jarmon, who was driving to a training facility, will fly to Philadelphia on Tuesday for a meeting and a physical with the Eagles on Wednesday.

NFL teams will bid via e-mail and the team that is willing to sacrifice the highest pick in next year's draft will get Jarmon.

Jarmon has selected Jimmy Sexton as his agent.
