Supplemental Draft: Redskins Unlikely To Make Any Moves

Via the Washington Post:

A year ago, the Redskins were the only team that made a move in the supplemental draft, making Jeremy Jarmon a third-round selection. This year’s supplemental draft is slated for today and it’d be surprising if you heard a peep out of Redskins Park.

The most likely player to hear his name called today is running back Harvey Unga, who withdrew from BYU after violating the school’s honor code. In just three seasons, Unga managed to become the school’s all-time leading rusher and last year earned first team All-MWC honors.

Unga last week had a workout for 20 NFL teams. It is not believed that the Redskins were one of them. Six other teams reportedly requested video of Unga.

Here’s a pretty thorough breakdown of Unga’s strengths and weaknesses. Most expect him to go in the fourth- to sixth-round.

Even if the Redskins liked him and felt they needed an unproven power back, it’d be a risky proposition. Right now, the Redskins hold only six picks in the 2011 NFL Draft, though that number could change because some of their offseason trades involved conditional picks.
