Rams interested in BYU RB Harvey Unga

Former BYU running back Harvey Unga is the man of the hour for the upcoming NFL Supplemental Draft. The St. Louis Rams are one of four team that are said to have the most interest in Unga, according to a Yahoo Sports report. 

We discussed this possibility in a post last week. Unga profiles as something of a tweener, with the scouting report at Mocking the Draft of the opinion that he profiles more as a fullback. However, Unga did show some nice hands out of the backfield, which is something the Rams coaching staff desires in their running backs. 

I don't know anything about Unga other than what the scouting reports say. A tough player who can fight through contact he might be a nice short yardage and goal line option, saving some wear and tear on Steven Jackson. Is that worth a fifth or even fourth round pick?

  • Two more players will be available in the supplemental draft: Truman State (MO) WR/RB Vaness Emokpae and Illinois DT Josh Price-Brent. Neither player is expected to be drafted, though Price-Brent could fetch an extra seventh round pick.
  • National scouting grades are out for some big names in the 2011 NFL Draft. Washington QB Jake Locker got a 6.7, ninth overall. A couple players that could be of interest to the Rams with a top ten pick at Iowa DE Adrian Clayborn, who tied with Nebraska CB Price Amukamara with 7.3, and North Carolina DT Marvin Austin.
