Ex-BYU RB Unga works out for 20 teams

Former BYU RB Harvey Unga (6-foot-1, 244 pounds) worked out in front of 20 teams Thursday ahead of next week’s supplemental draft.

Among those on hand to watch the all-time leading rusher in Cougars history — on what was described as an older, smoother FieldTurf at BYU — were representatives from the Steelers, Packers, Dolphins, Giants, Seahawks and Saints.

An injured right ankle reportedly hampered Unga’s workout, specifically his ability to cut.

Nevertheless, Unga recorded 40-yard dash times of 4.76 and 4.65; a 4.51-second short shuttle; 7.41-second three-cone drill; a 35-inch vertical jump; and 9-foot, 6-inch broad jump.

Unga voluntarily withdrew from BYU in April after a reported honor-code violation.

The supplemental draft will take place July 15.
