Ex-BYU RB Unga works out for 20 teams

Posted: July 8th, 2010 | Gil Brandt | Tags: BYU, supplemental draft, Harvey Unga

Former BYU RB Harvey Unga (6-foot-1, 244 pounds) worked out in front of 20 teams Thursday ahead of next week’s supplemental draft.

Among those on hand to watch the all-time leading rusher in Cougars history — on what was described as an older, smoother FieldTurf at BYU — were representatives from the Steelers, Packers, Dolphins, Giants, Seahawks and Saints.

An injured right ankle reportedly hampered Unga’s workout, specifically his ability to cut.

Nevertheless, Unga recorded 40-yard dash times of 4.76 and 4.65; a 4.51-second short shuttle; 7.41-second three-cone drill; a 35-inch vertical jump; and 9-foot, 6-inch broad jump.

Unga voluntarily withdrew from BYU in April after a reported honor-code violation.

The supplemental draft will take place July 15.

Apparantly Unga sprained his ankle two weeks ago, so he likely good
perform better.

No surprise that we are interested.

He has been very productive in college, is a physical runner, good hands and doesn't fumble.

If we put a bid in for him (likely a late rounder at best) it would mean we have 4 players Brown, Johnson, Ware and Unga competing for 2 roster spots. I think Unga could beat out the last two.
