Last month, the Philadelphia Eagles made Nebraska center Cam Jurgens their second-round selection in the NFL Draft.

Jurgens is not only a former Cornhusker--he's a Nebraska native, born and raised in Beatrice. The rugged 6-foot-3, 303-pound interior lineman also seems to be at home on a farm.

In a hilarious video shared by the official NFL Twitter account, Jurgens can be seen lining up to block a cow. Instead of engaging with him, the cow runs away, seemingly "scared."

“Like farming, football never stops," reads the caption Jurgens used.

Like we said, Jurgens is at home in the country. Heck, he was even drafted during a tornado warning in Nebraska.

“Oh my God,” Jurgens said, via NBCSports Philly. “It was wild, man.”

Heading into his rookie season with the Eagles, Jurgens appears to be the heir apparent to Jason Kelce at center. He was a third-team All-Big Ten selection last season.
