The Philadelphia Eagles have a rookie that’s a “must-watch” player during the preseason, according to CBS Sports.

Josh Edwards, an NFL writer for CBS Sports, recently pointed out several must-watch rookies during preseason action and he listed Eagles rookie offensive lineman Cam Jurgens.

Jurgens, a center out of Nebraska, was selected by Philadelphia in the second round (No. 51 overall) of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Here’s what CBS Sports had to say about Jurgens:

Athletic, but raw is the short-and-sweet version of the former tight end’s scouting report. Jurgens plays the game with a mean streak and now has an opportunity to learn from one of the game’s best in Jason Kelce. The changes made to Philadelphia’s offense during the second half of the 2021 regular season suit Jurgens’ skill set well. Kelce is unlikely to get a lot of repetitions during the preseason, so that opens the door for the rookie from Nebraska.

“Obviously, a big part of my job or a big part of what I want to do is help these young guys out. And Cam being a center, a guy that I see a lot of similarities in my game to, I’m going to try to help in any way I can to give him tricks of the trade, things I’ve learned or whatever. I think that we’re going to continue to make each other better throughout camp. We’re going to continue to work, compete and try and get better as much as we can,” Kelce said, via NBC Sports.

It didn’t take long for Jurgens to become a fan favorite during camp. He’s a hard worker that has pledged to “work his ass off” with the Eagles. That’s something fans in Philly obviously appreciate.

The Eagles might be the only team in the NFL with two legitimate starting centers. I wouldn’t be surprised if other franchises have been calling Philly asking if they’d be willing to trade Jurgens.

And I assume the answer from the Eagles is a hard no. Jurgens is a major asset that Philadelphia needs to keep stashed for now.
