Hawks pass on RB Unga in supplemental draft

The Seattle Seahawks apparently decided against taking a chance on BYU running back Harvey Unga to add to the team's running back competition in today's supplemental draft.

Instead, the Chicago Bears selected the 6-foot-1, 244-pound power runner in the seventh and final round. Unga was expected to go as high as the fourth round, but concerns about his speed, blocking ability and health appear to have lowered his draft status.

The only other player selected in the supplemental draft was Illinois defensive tackle Josh Price-Brent, selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the seventh round.

Both the Bears and the Cowboys will have to give up seventh round picks in the 2011 draft.

Northwestern State running back Quentin Castille and Truman State fullback Vanness Emokpae were not selected and now can be signed by teams as free agents.
