Redskins Select Maurice Hurt, Guard From Florida

Posted by Matt Terl on April 30, 2011 – 5:52 pm

With the 217th pick overall, the Redskins select Maurice Hurt, a guard out of Florida. He’s another guy I don’t know much about, but here are two things I can say for certain:

  • 1) He has a terrific name for an offensive lineman (or any football player, really).
  • 2) I will feel much safer walking to my car in the Redskins Park parking lot tonight knowing that we’ve selected at least one offensive lineman. The fans — at least on Twitter — were becoming restless.

Oh, and I know this: draft analyst Rob Rang had some nice things to say about Mr. Hurt:

Underrated: Maurice Hurt, Florida: There are two significant reasons why Hurt hasn’t received more attention. For one, he plays on the same line as Mike Pouncey and two other senior Gator offensive linemen who could get drafted, so credit was tough to come by. Secondly, he has a bad body. Quite frankly, the 6-2 5/8, 318-pounder is round. That said, he has surprisingly long arms for his frame (third among all interior OL tested at the combine), which the tape proves he uses well in pass protection and in the running game. Don’t be surprised when Hurt is drafted on the third day of the draft, but he winds up outperforming some prospects taken much earlier. – Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
