49ers met with Nebraska center Cam Jurgens at the NFL Scouting Combine

Mar 9, 2022 at 4:46 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers were among several teams to meet with Nebraska center Cam Jurgens, per Justin Melo of The Draft Network. The others include the New York Jets, Green Bay Packers, Arizona Cardinals, New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills, and Pittsburgh Steelers.


Melo calls Jurgens "one of the top mid-round offensive line prospects" in the 2022 NFL Draft. The offensive lineman started every game at center for the Cornhuskers in 2021.

Jurgens is from Beatrice, NE. He earned a pre-draft grade of 5.83 from NFL.com, which equates to an "average backup or special-teams player," per the site's 8-point grading scale.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-3 and 303-pound Jurgens had a 40-time of 4.92 seconds and 25 reps in the bench press. Jurgens' other measurables include an arm length of 33 3/8 inches and hands measuring 10 inches.

Lance Zierlein of NFL.com wrote the following about Jurgens within his scouting report:

Center prospect with a lack of desired measurables and position versatility that could cap his draft value. Jurgens is quick with above-average athleticism but needs to harness his energy and play with better control in the early stages of the rep to improve his strike zone and success rate. He's a bit of a leaner in pass protection and could struggle to find his anchor against rugged bull rushers. He can play in a variety of run schemes but has average backup talent.

Weight: 303 lbs.

NFL.com writer Kevin Patra took a look around the league and ranked the 10 biggest remaining roster holes heading into training camp. Some teams appear set for the 2022 season. Others still have work to do, finding solutions to bolster potential weaknesses. Patra looked at each team's biggest weakness and ranked it against other teams' biggest weaknesses. The San Francisco 49ers came in at No. 2, with the center position being identified as the Bay Area team's biggest weakness. Assuming right tackle Mike McGlinchey returns healthy, the 49ers appear set (as far as knowing who the starters will be) along the edges of the offensive line.

In May, Pro Football Focus ranked recently-married San Francisco 49ers linebacker Fred Warner as the best in the NFL at his position, ahead of other star defenders like Darius Leonard. Warner's elite status in the analytics site's eyes helped elevate the 49ers' unit in Pro Football Focus' ranking of the off-ball linebackers. That simply means linebackers who don't line up on the outside as edge rushers. San Francisco's linebackers grabbed the top spot in analyst



49ers insider identifies NFL team that makes the most sense for Jimmy Garoppolo

Jimmy Garoppolo will be a quarterback on some NFL roster during the 2022 season. However, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area doesn't believe it will be with the San Francisco 49ers. The Niners attempted to trade Garoppolo in March, but all discussions halted when the quarterback surprised the team and opted to undergo shoulder surgery. That delayed things, which reduced the 49ers' options. As Garoppolo recovered, the list of quarterback-needy teams shrunk. 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan have tried to convince everyone that they are willing, if necessary, to hold onto Garoppolo in 2022 if a suitable offer doesn't present itself. That certainly isn't Plan A, though. Instead, once the quarterback is healthy, they hope to try to
