BYU's Unga enters NFL's supplemental draft

Both BYU’s running back Harvey Unga and Truman State running back Vanness Emokpae have sent in their paperwork to be included in the NFL's supplemental draft on July 15. Unga is BYU's career rushing leader with 3,455 yards, he was suspended from the team thought about transferring to another school, but decided to make himself eligible for the supplemental draft. He most likely will get drafted with a sixth or seventh round pick from a team looking for a big physical running back. Emokpae will not get draft and will be a free-agent but possible could sign as a free-agent.

Unga will most likely have a workout for NFL teams because they will need to see how fast he really is because that is one of the biggest concerns for NFL teams his speed. He is a physical running and is a good receiver out of the backfield, so some teams are thinking about possible using him as a full back. If he is able to run in the high 4.5’s to low 4.6’s I think he could be worth a late round pick in the supplemental draft. If teams use a pick in the supplemental draft then they lose that same round pick in the next years NFL Draft that is held in April.
