Twenty Four teams watch Unga workout
Secured a spot in the late rounds?Twenty four teams made their way to Provo, Utah today to watch supplemental draft prospect Harvey Unga workout on the campus of BYU. The session ended just minutes ago and the big ball carrier did not disappoint those who made the trip.
Unga started the day by measuring 6-feet 1-inch and 244-pounds. His arm measured 31 1/4 inches and hand 9 5/8 inches.
The big ball carrier completed 19 reps on the bench, touched 35-inches on the vertical jump and posted a broad jump of 9-feet 6-inches.
He ran faster than anyone expected in the forty, clocking times which ranged between 4.58-4.63 seconds on both attempts. His fastest timing at ten yards was 1.65-seconds.
Afterwards, in position drills, Unga looked fantastic catching the ball and did not drop a single pass.
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 their facility prior to today’s workout and the Chiefs have already met privately with Unga on two different occasions.
The general consensus at the workout is teams are looking at the 244-pound Unga as a ball carrier rather than a lead blocker.
The supplemental draft takes place July 15th and the feeling is Unga has secured himself a place, somewhere in the late rounds.
Unga, BYU’s all-time leading rusher with over 3,400 yards and 36 touchdowns, left the team in April after violating the school’s Honor Code by having a relationship with Keilani Moeaki, younger sister of former Iowa tight end Tony Moeaki, who was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in April.
