Post PBP: 2010 Supplemental Draft
Quote:
The NFL Draft took place April 22-24, but the Dolphins and the 31 other NFL teams still have a chance to draft a player today and bring him to training camp when the season opens in two weeks.

Most years, the Supplementary Draft has one intriguing player, and this year it’s BYU running back Harvey Unga, the school’s all-time leading rusher (3,455 yards) who left school in April for violating the school’s honor code (widely believed to be having pre-marital sex with his girlfriend). About 20 teams, including the Dolphins, watched Unga work out last week in Utah.


The other three candidates in this year’s draft are Northwestern State RB Quentin Castille, Truman State WR/RB Vanness Emokpae and Illinois DT Joshua Price-Brent. Unga and Price-Brent are the two likeliest players to be drafted today, but the Dolphins probably won’t be their landing spot.

The Dolphins have drafted just one player in the Supplemental Draft since 1977 — Manny Wright in 2005, who became Nick Saban’s personal punching bag — and Bill Parcells has never taken a player in the Supplemental Draft in all his years as a head coach and general manager.

That’s because the Supplemental Draft has risk involved — if a team takes Unga in the third round of today’s draft, for example, it must surrender a third-round pick in the next year’s draft.

But the 32 teams are in no way forced to make a selection in the Supplemental Draft — in many years, zero players are taken — and this draft works differently from the one held in April. Today, each NFL team can submit a “bid” on each of the available players, with the bid consisting of the round in which it would draft the player. Non-playoff teams are given weight over playoff teams if two or more teams submit the same bid. The Rams, with the league’s worst record last year, have priority over everyone.

The Dolphins can bid on Unga with a fifth-round pick, but will lose out to teams submitting a bid of fourth-round and sooner. Most players are taken in the third-sixth round range, and the last player selected with a first-round bid was quarterback Dave Brown in 1992. The Dolphins chose Wright with a fifth-round pick in 2005.

Unga, a bruising 239-pound back, will likely cost a team a third-round pick today, meaning the Dolphins, already loaded at the position with Ronnie Brown, Ricky Williams, Patrick Cobbs and Kory Sheets, almost certainly won’t get him.

The only possibility today for the Dolphins is Price-Brent, a 6-foot-1, 321-pound nose tackle who had three sacks for Illinois last year and left the team after being declared academically ineligible (he also spent 30 days in jail for a DUI last year). The Dolphins maybe could use another body to clog the middle of the defense while Jason Ferguson misses the first eight games with a suspension, but the cost of a draft pick is probably too high for the Dolphins (and Price-Brent didn’t impress anybody with his 22 reps on the bench press last week).

Highly unlikely on that DT... these guys like smart players... not "academically ineligible" players.

6'1 320ish doesnt sound like the trifecta's type of NT either...... wasnt Starks moved to NT primarily because he's like 6'3 330 and could put on more? Like every other position, the trifecta has prototypical requirements..... i would assume the trifecta would look for say a 6'3+ 330-350 man at a NT position......... although Ratliff was an exception in Dallas.

According to Schefter on ESPN.com and Twitter...

Bears selected Harvey Unga, RB, Brigham Young in Round 7. Cowboys selected Josh Price-Brent, DE, Illinois in Round 7.

But you know he broke a school rule by having premarital sex. So by that reasoning he's already a problem child and Bill doesn't like those. lol

Really? That's a school rule? And even if it were, how did they know?

Why? There's no roster spot for him.
