    Versatility on the offensive line. That's a good thing. Does this guy play LG or RG?

    Interesting that Duke Robinson is still on the board.

    Ktrain.......How pissed are you now?.....I don't know about Urbik...To me he is the typical Wisconsin OL that can maul in the run game but will struggle in pass protection.....

    its this versatility bullshit that pisses me off....first we drafted ryan mcbean and now we drafted cameron stephenson.

    robinson would have been better, hes a tackle that cant cut it at tackle so hes a beast guard....at least he knows his place on the line

    I wanted to get Derrick Williams out of Penn State at either 79 or 84 and the Lions just picked him up at 82...I like the Urbick pick though...He is 328 pounds and looks like a Alan Faneca maybe type player...

    Happy
    Analysis Positives: Versatile player who could handle strong-side guard or tackle duties. Tall and strong with a solid punch. Very difficult to bull rush, as he uses his hands and anchors very well. Moves feet fairly well in pass protection, walling off tackles to create holes inside and getting to linebackers at the second level. Traps and pulls inside, usually finding a target to negate. Combos well, pushing with one arm on the tackle and reaching the linebacker. Willing to head downfield on pass plays to get to safeties and corners. Comes out of his stance with power and gets his hands up on his man's jersey quickly. Picks up twists and blitzes well.

    Negatives: Plays a bit tall at times, and can get off balance. Loses the leverage battle at times as his pads aren't low enough in short-yardage situations. Best at trapping or pulling just outside the right tackle. Doesn't dominate smaller players in space as much as you'd think at his size. Tends to lean into his man a bit too much at the line, getting off balance and only adequately recovering.
    Never heard of him

    I've seen a lot of your posts since yesterday, and I have to ask: why don't you be the GM? After all, you know better what's best for the team, right?

    Total farm boy workhorse. Strong, big man, needs some work on technique which can be taught.

    Bye, bye zone blocking ....




    Scouting the draft: Wisconsin's Kraig Urbik

    By SHALISE MANZA YOUNG
    Journal Sports Writer

    Player: Kraig Urbik, Wisconsin
    Height and Weight: 6-foot-5, 328 pounds
    Position: Offensive guard
    Hometown: Hudson, Wis. (Hudson HS)
    Senior year: Started 11 games, allowed one sack
    Career: Started 50 games; allowed three sacks over final two seasons
    Honors: Two-time second-team All-Big Ten

    NFL Combine:
    5.37 seconds (40-yard dash)
    29 reps (bench press)
    24 inches (vertical leap)
    7-foot-10 (broad jump)

    Is he a fit for the Steelers?

    Urbik is versatile, strong and a hard worker, which is a good start. A four-year starter for the Badgers, Urbik is hoping to continue the tradition of well-prepared, tough offensive linemen Wisconsin has sent to the NFL, like Washington’s Casey Rabach and 2007 top-five draft pick Joe Thomas.

    Urbik began the first 16 games of his career at right tackle and then slid inside to right guard, and his ability to play both is certainly a plus in scouts’ eyes. A blue-collar good guy with a nasty streak in the trenches, he has a solid punch move, moves his feet well in pass protection and has good awareness in terms of picking up the blitz and a defender’s movements.

    He started 45 straight games before a knee injury sidelined him for two-plus games last season, and the Wisconsin offensive struggled without its leader. However, he may struggle in a zone-blocking scheme and can get too tall in his stance at times.
