Played some left guard on goal-line packages. Played in every game as a sophomore. A physical and aggressive work-to-finish type competitor. Takes good angles to combo block the second level in the run game and gains position to seal linebackers. Locks on and gets push in the run game. Zone blocking guard who gains a good head and hand position and drives the defender in the direction of his angle. Moves his feet on contact. Maintains leverage and position in pass protection. Good blitz pickup awareness. A two-time all Big-10 1st team all-conference player and a two-time Capital One/CoSida Academic All-America. Completed undergraduate and master’s degree in mathematics with a 4.0 GPA in four years. Taught undergraduate mathematics classes in the spring of 2013. Urschel did a study for ESPN’s analytics in the March 3, 2014 issue. The Penn State All-American learned that two Combine tests proved statistically significant to find “a lineman in the rough”. One test was the 40-yard dash. The other was the 20-yard shuttle. Long story short – run a 20-yard shuttle under 4.62 seconds as an offensive lineman to increase your chances of getting drafted. Urschel’s advice to fellow under-the- radar prospects – improve your coverage of linear and lateral area. Urshcel’s 20 shuttle Combine time was 4.47 seconds. OSR:17/ 40. Fifth/sixth round. (A-33, H-10 3/8, BP-30, 10-1.84).
