Seven NFL Teams Are Interested In BYU's Harvey Unga In Today's Supplemental Draft

Today is the day of the NFL's supplemental draft, with the draft having only four players.  The two most likely candidates to get drafted are BYU's Harvey Unga and Illinois DT Joshua Price-Brent.  At Unga's pro day 20 scouts came out to see and while he ran a somewhat slower 40 in the 4.6 - 4.7 range Unga has interested from seven teams which are Chicago, Kansas City, St. Louis, Seattle, New England, Pittsburgh, and Green Bay.

Out of that group it looks like the Bears and Chiefs are the front runners.  The Bears flew him out to work out prior to his work out day, and the Chiefs have meet with Unga on two separate occassions.  Unga is expected to be going for a late round pick.

For those who are unaware of how the supplemental draft works it is basically an auction where every NFL team is eligible and the teams place a bid which essentially is what round they would take a player.  For example, if a team bids a fourth round pick on Unga and no one else puts in a better bid with a higher draft pick then that team who put up a fourth rounder gets Unga, and then gives up their four round for the 2011 draft.  Now, if there are two teams that bid the same the pick goes to the team with the worst record.
