The Chicago Bears selected BYU RB Harvey Unga and the Dallas Cowboys selected Illinois DE Josh Price-Brent.
The Bears had the 12th pick in each round; the Cowboys had the 30th. If Dallas hadn’t picked Price-Brent, there’s a good chance he wouldn’t have been picked at all.
Fullback Vaness Emokpae and running back Quentin Castille were not drafted. They now become unrestricted free agents.
I’m surprised that both guys came so close to going undrafted.
It would seem that all of the “talk” about Unga going as high as the third round was nothing more than typical agent-hype and nothing more. Either way, he is a guy that will be able to help Chicago this year and is well worth a pick in the final round.
As i said earlier, Price-Brent is a kid that could have come to St. Joseph and added some depth in the middle. Hard to get too upset about passing on someone in the Supplemental Draft, but I think Pioli missed out a on a chance to get a big body on the line that could provide solid rush skills from the nose tackle position.
