NEW YORK (AP) - The Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys have each made seventh-round picks in the supplemental draft on Thursday.
The Bears, picking 12th, chose BYU running back Harvey Unga. The Cowboys, selecting 30th, picked Illinois defensive end Josh Price-Brent.
With the selections, Chicago and Dallas will forgo their seventh-round picks in the 2011 draft.
Unga was an all-Mountain West conference first-team selection as a redshirt junior in 2009 and is BYU's career leading rusher with 3,455 yards. He led the conference with 1,087 yards rushing in 2009.
Price-Brent played 32 games for Illinois, including 20 starts, totaling 17½ tackles for a loss and five sacks. He led the team with three forced fumbles in 2009 and finished third on the team with three sacks.
