Projected Round: 5-6
Versatility on the defensive line is the big thing in the NFL right now. As the Seattle Seahawks showed the world this season, if you have quality, athletic defensive lineman you can wreak havoc on the other team. And, you can never have too many of them.
Brent Urban was initially recruited to be a defensive end in a 3-4 system, but when Virginia switched to a 4-3 he transitioned seamlessly into a role as a defensive tackle. He plays hard, pursues well and has extremely long arms. His pass rushing could use some work, but he has the raw skills to be an impact player in the pros.
