Wake Forest | Senior | Round 7, Pick 230 Overview - Solid three-year starter as a center/guard but will need to stick at center as his primary position. Jurgens uses accurate hands and consistent footwork to fit blocks with good centering, but he doesn't have the core strength needed to displace opponents or keep from being pulled and shoved off balance by a strong nose tackle. He's fairly average as an athlete but he does see the field well in pass protection and steadies the gaps around him. Jurgens' lack of functional power and contact balance could hurt his chances as a late-round pick or priority free agent.
