OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Ravens continued an effort to beef up their defensive line by selecting Virginia’s Brent Urban with the 134th overall selection to begin Day 3 of the 2014 NFL draft.
The 6-foot-7, 298-pound end was the second defensive line to be drafted by the Ravens over the first four rounds, joining second-round pick Timmy Jernigan from Florida State. The Canadian lineman was drafted with the 15th overall selection of the Canadian Football League by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats last year but elected to remain with the Cavaliers.
Starting 20 games over his last two seasons in Charlottesville, Urban made 75 tackles, 16.5 stops for a loss, and three sacks in his four-year collegiate career. A high ankle sprain limited him to eight games last season, but Urban still earned all-ACC honorable mention honors as he led all down linemen in the nation and finished sixth overall on the league charts with nine pass deflections.
Urban told reporters he’s confident he’ll be 100 percent by the summer after undergoing ankle surgery in February. The lingering issue forced him to withdrawal from January’s Senior Bowl.
With Ravens defensive end Chris Canty turning 32 in November, Urban figures to be a possible successor at the 5-technique spot in Baltimore’s 3-4 base alignment.
