Cam Jurgens is an athletic marvel, hailing from the cornhusking nation of Nebraska. A starter for over thirty games, Jurgens came into college as a tight end but spent his redshirt season bulking up for the transition to center. Once he entered the starting lineup as a sophomore, he was a force on second-level defenders; he had maintained his speed and athleticism from his days as a pass catcher, while adding some pop behind his hands with the increase in size.
Jurgens was a three sport athlete in highschool (football, basketball, track) and was a true ironman in football, playing tight end and linebacker. He excelled on both sides of the ball and was selected first-team all-state at both spots. He even served as his high school’s primary punter, averaging 35.8 yards per attempt.
Jurgens became a pre-draft process darling after blowing up the combine and Nebraska’s Pro day with an absurd RAS score of 9.94. This impressive testing included a 4.92 in the 40 yard dash, a 33.5” vertical , and one of the best 3-cones ever recorded by a center at 7.19.
Needless to say, once I saw these numbers I knew I needed to take a closer look at the mutant playing center in Nebraska. Did his tape live up to the freakish testing numbers?
