Chiefs May Not Be Interested If Harvey Unga Goes As High As 3rd Round

The NFL supplemental draft is tomorrow and the biggest questions surround BYU RB Harvey Unga. He is the one most feel will be drafted at some point and maybe the only one that will be drafted.

According to Aaron Wilson of National Football Post, Unga could be going as high as the third round.

Former Brigham Young running back Harvey Unga could go as high as the third round or fourth round during Wednesday's NFL supplemental draft, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.

Under a worst-case scenario, he's not expected to go any lower than the fifth round or sixth round.

This is likely coming from information his agent or someone close to him has received about where he might go.

The Chiefs have met with him privately on two occasions and attended his workout on July 8. They're considered to be one of a handful of teams that are interested in him.

That said, I have a hard time believing the Chiefs would give up a third or fourth round selection for him. Remember, they drafted high in April's draft so their bid would be higher than most others meaning they could probably get him if they wanted him in the third round.

GM Scott Pioli greatly values draft picks so without fully knowing what's coming next year I'm not sure I see the Chiefs getting involved at that price.
