Overview

When Urbik's streak of 45 consecutive starts came to an end when he injured his knee vs. Penn State in 2008, the Badgers' midseason struggles began. Without their offensive leader, Wisconsin lost five of six contests before a fully recovered Urbik, the right offensive guard, guided the team to a 3-1 record to close out the season.

Wisconsin has been known for developing quite a bit of offensive line talent for the NFL ever since former head coach Barry Alvarez arrived on campus. A member of that renowned coach's best recruiting class, Urbik was the first Badger freshman to start at offensive tackle since All-American Chris McIntosh did in 1996. Urbik would go on to start 16 games at right tackle and 34 at right guard during his career -- and that versatility has made him one of the most coveted linemen in the 2009 NFL Draft.

Coach Alvarez hit the "mother lode" when he went recruiting at Hudson High School, as he not only secured the services of Urbik, but those of his prep teammate, Eric Vanden Heuvel, who went on to start on the right side of the Badger's front wall for the last three seasons.

At Hudson High School, Urbik was named to Prep Star's All-American team and was rated one of the top 55 players in the Midwest, according to Super Prep, as a senior. He was rated the third-best player in Wisconsin by Rivals.com, earning first-team All-State honors from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The team captain and MVP was also a first-team All-Conference selection while starting every game as a junior and senior. Urbik lettered in basketball and track, in addition to playing football. As a senior, he placed fifth in shot put at the Division I state meet.

Urbik enrolled at Wisconsin in 2004, earning Scout Team Player of the Week honors for his performance on that squad prior to the Michigan State clash. In 2005, he started 13 games at right offensive tackle, delivering 66 knockdowns and nine touchdown-resulting blocks to earn second-team Freshman All-American honors. The team ranked 14th in the nation in scoring (34.31 ppg) and 11th in pass efficiency (149.51 rating) during his first year with the varsity.

In 2006, Urbik shifted to right offensive guard. He tallied 83 knockdowns and eight touchdown-resulting blocks to help the Badgers average 29.23 points and 373.2 yards per game in total offense. Even though the front wall allowed 30 quarterback sacks, only one was charged to its sophomore offensive guard.

As a junior, Urbik received consensus All-Big Ten Conference second-team honors. He started the first 10 games at right guard, closing the season with three more starting assignments at left tackle. He registered a team-high 104 knockdowns and led the Big Ten guards with 15 touchdown-resulting blocks. Behind his stellar performance, the team averaged 408.77 yards per game, finishing second in the league and 21st nationally with a rushing average of 200.77 yards. He also recorded the only tackle of his career, coming vs. Penn State.

Despite suffering a knee injury vs. Penn State that would sideline Urbik for two midseason games, he was named to Phil Steele's All-American first-team and chosen first-team All-Big Ten Conference by several publications. He made 72 knockdowns and 11 touchdown-resulting blocks, paving the way for the conference-leading ground attack that averaged 211.15 yards per game, the 14th-best figure in the nation.

When in need, draft an Olineman from Wisconsin or Nebraska. Works every time.

ESPN analysis

Urbik is a blue-collar player who doesn't have the greatest athleticism but plays with an aggressive attitude. He shows good strength at the point of attack and works hard to finish blocks. However, his lack of lateral mobility brings up some concerns against quicker interior players.
