Round 7 – No. 14 (217 overall)
Maurice Hurt, G
Washington Redskins


Height: 6’3″ – Weight: 318 lbs.
Age: 21 – Class: Senior

Thought to possibly fall out of the 2011 NFL Draft after it was revealed he tested positive for marijuana usage at the 2011 NFL Scouting Combine, Florida Gators guard Maurice Hurt ended up being selected with the 14th pick in the seventh round (No. 217 overall) by the Washington Redskins.

The third Florida offensive lineman chosen in the draft, Hurt is the Gators’ first seventh-round pick since 2007 and the first UF player selected by Washington since wide receiver Taylor Jacobs was the No. 44 overall pick in the second round in 2003.

He projects as a reserve at the next level due to his overall lack of athleticism and questionable football IQ. Hurt will be the only former Gators player on the Redskins unless quarterback Rex Grossman is re-signed in the offseason.
