Default Re: 09 Mock Draft

Watched the replay of the BYU New Mexico game from back in october....

What do you guys think of WAC RB Harvey Unga ( pronounced un ha) ? Not a fleet foot guy in terms of speed. But he has nifty feet, knows how to press a hole and...he has arms like six inch pipes. What was that guy the Oilers went into San Diego and won with Gifford Nielson subbing in a play off game...Micheal Moriority....Larry Moriority ? BYU spread.... but a guy that big unless he's a total feminine napkin..He ought to be pretty tough. Pacific rim guy.

RUNNING BACKS

The Cougars were in great shape at running back - until Manase Tonga was determined to be academically ineligible for the 2008 season. Still, they have enough talent and experience to more than get by, provided they stay clear of nagging injuries that hampered them last year.
Of course, the key returner is sophomore Harvey Unga, the 6-foot-tall, 243-pound conference offensive player of the year candidate who burst onto the scene in a big way in 2007, rushing for 1,227 yards and displaying a mixture of speed, power and shiftiness that made Cougar fans forget about Curtis Brown, the program's all-time leading rusher who graduated after the 2006 season.
Unga, who redshirted in 2006 due to a hip injury, not only had 13 touchdowns on 244 carries, but proved to be a capable receiver, too, making 44 catches for 655 yards and four TDs. The 1,227 rushing yards was a MWC record for a freshman and also a BYU freshman record.
With Tonga out of the lineup, look for senior Fui Vakapuna to re-emerge as a battering ram and a lead blocker for Unga. While battling a hand injury and tender ankles last year, Vakapuna still scored 11 touchdowns. He had 252 rushing yards on 73 carries. http://extras.mnginteractive.com/liv...htn891_200.jpg
