Round 3, 102nd Overall: Cameron Jurgens, OL, Nebraska
As we’ve discussed, Armstead was a great start to the Miami Dolphins rebuild along the offensive line. It gives flexibility with Liam Eichenberg, who can kick inside to left guard. It remains to be seen what happens with Austin Jackson, as the idea of right tackle has been thrown out there.
Still, the main hole along the line is center, a crucial part to a Kyle Shanahan offense. Shanahan often talked about having a cerebral center, and it’s likely that McDaniel will want the same thing. The end of day two in the 2022 NFL Draft will be a sweet spot for the position.
Landing Cameron Jurgens would be a great start for the Dolphins in the draft. Jurgens is a smart center, and he brings athleticism in spades, as shown by the combine numbers and the film. The initial quicks and ability to pull are evident from the jump, and he plays with good power and gets to his spot as a space blocker. Jurgens also possesses the finishing mentality and does a great job sustaining blocks both in a phone booth and in space.
Jurgens would be a great first selection for the Miami Dolphins that would provide some stability and a great mentality on day one.
