Chiefs Expected To Be One Of 20 Teams Watching Harvey Unga's Pro Day

New, comments

Harvey Unga, former BYU running back, is entering the supplemental draft. Unga, who was kicked out of BYU for reportedly having premarital sex -- a no-no at BYU -- was eligible to return to the school in 2011 but has elected to enter the supplemental draft instead.

We previously passed along a report that the Chiefs front office had spent "over an hour" on the phone with Unga and were one of a few teams expressing interest in his services.

As it turns out, they're not the only ones interested. Mike Berardino of the Sun-Sentinel reports the Dolphins will also be in attendance at his pro day. Per Berardino, there are expected to be 20 teams watching his July 8 pro day.

The Chiefs of course are expected to be one of the 20.

Meanwhile, after my latest posting on Unga, I received an email from a BYU fan who had some good words on Unga's abilities at the next level:

As for his abilities - he's a solid player, performed well against BCS schools as well as Mountain West crap. May have to be a fullback in the right system in NFL. The two guys that blocked for him (when we went to the I formation) are in the NFL now (both tongans - Fui Vakapuna with the Bengals and rookie Manosa Tonga with the Raiders - their predecessor, Fahu Tahi starts at FB for Minn Vikings). He will have the ability to pick up the offense quick and always block for QB / TB. Has great hands and is a nightmare to bring down.

The Chiefs are seemingly set at running back but Thomas Jones is 32 years old. Unga, for the right price, may be worth it.

Anyone doing a supplemental mock draft? I'm just kidding. (No, really, I am kidding. No more mock drafts for a while)
