The all-time University of Virginia NFL team

The state slogan is “Virginia Is For Lovers.” But the NFL believes Virginia is for offensive tackles.

There have been five offensive tackles selected in the first round of NFL drafts and all were claimed in the first 15 picks. D’Brickashaw Ferguson went fourth overall in 2006, Jim Dombrowski sixth overall in 1986, Eugene Monroe eighth overall in 2009, Ray Roberts 10th overall in 1992 and Branden Albert 15th overall in 2008. All played at least seven seasons, all started at least 100 games except Monroe and two went to Pro Bowls – Albert and Ferguson.
