The Supplemental Draft and Questions For The Vikings

New, comments

 - One thing to look ahead to this week is the NFL supplemental draft on July 15. I can't recall the Green Bay Packers selecting a player in the supplemental draft since OL Mike Wahle in the late 1990s, which I confirmed via Wikipedia.

 - According to Cheesehead TV, they sent a scout to the workout for BYU RB Harvey Unga, who ran a 4.64 40 (his agent said he's ran 4.5 prior to an ankle injury). More on Unga from Mocking The Draft, which has him at 6-foot 3/4 and 245 lbs. He's projected to go as a 4th or 5th round selection according to CBSSports.com.  A 4.64 40 time would put give him a speed score of about 105, which isn't great. He would have a very good score of around 119 if he'd have run a 4.5 40 like his agent said. The Packers do like big running backs, but with the selection of RB James Starks in the 6th round last April, it doesn't seem like Unga fills a need.

 - Cheesehead TV also had noted that the Packers scouted Illinois DL Josh Brent-Price for the supplemental draft. Again, with the selection of DE Mike Neal and DE C.J. Wilson last April, it doesn't seem like there is a need for Brent-Price.
