BYU Running Back Harvey Unga Entering NFL Supplemental Draft

New, comments

BYU's Harvey Unga who withdrew himself from the University due to violating the Honor Code has officially entered the NFL's supplemental draft which will take place in July.  The supplemental draft is a different then the regular NFL draftand participation is voluntary by NFL teams 

The supplemental draft unfolds like a silent auction, with teams submitting at the start of each "round" the name of any player they'd like to select. Priority is pre-determined based on 2009 records. Any team that obtains a player via the supplemental draft sacrifices the corresponding draft pick from the following year's entry draft.

This was more of a formality of when Harvey was going to announce his intentions to enter this draft.  Unga was the all-time leading rusher with 3,455 yards on the ground while averaging 4.9 yards per carry.  Unga is expected to be a fullback at the NFL level, and most likely would have been a fourth to fifth round draft prospect in the 2010 or 2011 NFL draft.
