Brent Urban, of Mississauga, Ont., led a group of four players with Canadian backgrounds selected in the first six rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft.

The Baltimore Ravens selected the defensive end from the University of Virginia with the 34th pick of the fourth round, 134th overall, on Saturday.

Two Winnipeg-born players, raised in the United States, were also picked before McGill University offensive tackle Laurent Duvernay-Tardif was finally selected.

Duvernay-Tardif, who hails from Mont-Saint-Hilaire, Que., was seen as a third- or fourth-round pick by many experts, but was passed over until late in the sixth round when the Kansas City Chiefs made him the 200th pick of the draft.
