The Chicago Bears took BYU running back Harvey Unga with the 12th pick in the seventh and final round of the 2010 NFL Supplemental Draft on Thursday, and the Dallas Cowboys selected Illinois defensive tackle Josh Price-Brent 18 spots later.

The Bears and Cowboys will forego their seventh-round picks in the 2011 NFL Draft because they used supplemental choices.

Unga, BYU's all-time leading rusher with 3,455 yards, posted three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons at the school. He led the Mountain West Conference with 1,087 rushing yards last year.

Those credentials were part of the reason that 20 NFL teams attended Unga's July 8 workout. Unga has been hampered by a right ankle injury.

Price-Brent had 17.5 tackles for loss and five sacks in 32 games at Illinois. He led the Illini with three forced fumbles last season and was third on the team with three sacks.

The other players eligible for the supplemental draft were Northwestern (La.) State running back Quentin Castille and Truman State (Mo.) wide receiver Vanness Emokpae. Since they weren't taken, they become rookie free agents and can sign with any team.

Kentucky defensive end Jeremy Jarmon was the only player selected in last year's supplemental draft -- in the third round by the Washington Redskins. Jarmon played in 11 games last season, starting once, and had eight tackles and one forced fumble.
