Bucs take a pass on supplemental draft
The Bucs apparently didn't bid on either of the two players taken in today's supplemental draft, with BYU running back Harvey Unga going to the Bears with the 12th pick in the seventh round and Illinois defensive end Josh Price-Brent going to Dallas 18 spots later.
The Bucs would have had the third pick in each round based on last season's record, which means they presumably didn't make a request to draft either player.
The players not drafted today become rookie free agents, free to sign with any club. The Bucs had been among the 20 clubs who attended Unga's workout, one that seemed to indicate there was great interest in him.
