Chiefs Attend Harvey Unga's Workout, Have Met With Him Twice

New, comments

We've passed along a few reports over the past few weeks that the Chiefs were interested in former BYU running back Harvey Unga, who has put his name in the hat for the supplemental draft on July 15.

Now we hear from DraftInsider.net that the Chiefs are indeed interested. So much so that they've already met with him twice.

The Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears, Kansas City Chiefs, Arizona Cardinals, Minnesota Vikings, Carolina Panthers, Tampa Bay Bucs and Houston Texans were just a few of the two dozen teams on hand.

Chicago and Kansas City have shown the most interest in Unga to this point.

The Bears flew him to Chicago before the workout and the Chiefs "already met privately with Unga on two different occasions."

Unga weighed in at 244 pounds and stands 6'1" so it's fairly clear the Chiefs are interested in him as the big back to complement Jamaal Charles. Maybe the sort of role Thomas Jones is expected to fill in 2010.

The feeling as of now, according to DraftInsider.net, is that Unga will be a late round pick.
