    Urban’s performance is right on Target

    [size=13pt]Urban’s performance is right on Target[/size]

    May 4th, 2009 – 10:53 PM by Judd Zulgad

    Nick Urban’s phone wasn’t exactly ringing off the hook in the hours after the NFL draft ended on April 26. An offensive tackle from Division II Winona State, Urban had a good Pro Day working out for scouts at the University of Minnesota and had hoped to sign with a team in the hours after the draft.

    Looks like he's living the American dream. Good story, just hope he can continue to progress. Who knows, he could be a diamond in the ruff. He has to switch allegiance from being a Pack fan, or it's back to the check-out stand at Target. ;D

    Went to Winona State with him, great guy. Chances of him making the team are slim, but with our lack of talent and depth at center, hes got as good of a shot as any of the UDFAs of making the team or at least the practice squad.

    Nice to see the Vikings in the news for something good every once in a while. McKinnie could learn a thing or two from Urban.

    He likely has a better chance than a wide receiver or running back from a small school.

    I don't think his 40 time will be quite as important.

    Well given his circumstances then he may have a little more motivation than some have to make the team, often the more someone has to fight for something then the better the chance that they will make it. If he helps give us some depth on the OL then I'm always in favour of that.

    Incidentally I think you should associate with the Judean Peoples Front.. they have a clearer idea of how to oppose the Romans
    ;D ;D
