Eagles rookie NFL participant comparisons: Cam Jurgens

As we do each offseason, we will be evaluating every of the Philadelphia Eagles’ beginners to present or former NFL avid gamers. These days we will discover a comp for second-round heart Cam Jurgens.

Earlier participant comp profiles

Jordan Davis

First, who did Jurgens say he patterned his sport after?

“I used to be this type of large Husker fan. I more or less watched all of the positions. For facilities in particular within the NFL, Jason Kelce used to be a large person who I watched, Mitch Morse, so numerous the ones athletic guys who can get out and transfer.”

Jurgens is an undersized heart at 6’3, 303, however with remarkable athleticism. On the Mix he ran a 4.92 40 (97th percentile amongst facilities), with a 1.71 cut up (94th percentile). He is a weapon within the display screen sport, as he can get down the sphere, just like we have noticed Jason Kelce do during the last decade. He is additionally a power within the run sport, each as a puller and along with his agility to get to the second one degree and hone in on his objectives.

If given the chance to bully defensive backs and toss them round, he’s going to. He has somewhat of an average streak, and has been lauded for his toughness. He’s additionally a excellent technician, as he is in a position to execute achieve blocks along with his suddenness on the snap. He is in a position to use his quickness to seal off defenders from working lanes.

What you will not see a lot of with Jurgens is the facility to transport larger defenders towards their will. He isn’t a pile pusher within the run sport, and he’s going to need to turn out that he can anchor in go coverage.

The participant maximum often comped to Jurgens, has been, neatly, Jason Kelce. In truth, Kelce himself even mentioned that of all of the facilities he has watched over the previous few draft categories, Jurgens is participant who maximum reminded him of himself.

Comping Jurgens to Kelce is uninteresting, regardless that, so I’m going to throw out some other identify. He strikes a chord in my memory just a little of former New York Jets heart Nick Mangold. First, their measurables:

 Measurables  Cam Jurgens Nick Mangold 
 Peak 6’2 7/8″  6’4 
 Weight  303 300 
 40 backyard sprint  4.92 5.05 
 Bench press  25 reps 24 reps 

Like Jurgens, Mangold used to be undersized, however athletically proficient. Here is an outdated scouting document of Mangold’s from 2006

There don’t seem to be too many facilities that may transfer like Mangold. He has excellent athleticism, can get out and pull, and blocks neatly at the transfer. He’s a technician that hardly will get himself out of place. He will get out of his stance briefly and units up right away. He is tricky and won’t backpedal from somebody. His athletic talents give him the facility to play guard as neatly.

Mangold lacks the best measurement and energy to play heart within the NFL. He has the body so as to add extra weight, and must do to be able to be triumphant within the NFL. He’s at the lean aspect, and that aggregate of a loss of measurement and energy will give him suits within the league. He places himself in nice place however ceaselessly loses out to larger tackles on account of his incapability to pressure them off the road.

Mangold has packed on some weight for the reason that finish of the season. He nonetheless wishes to turn he can lift that weight and use the additional energy at the box. Mangold is a wonderful heart prospect, and would be the first heart off the board.

There is numerous overlap with Jurgens there.

Jurgens and Mangold each additionally every have their very own meals gigs. Jurgens sells his personal red meat jerky, whilst Mangold is an ordinary visitor on meals presentations. I do that additional analysis for you out of affection, pals.
