Eagles Add LSU DT Bennie Logan

Posted Apr 26, 2013

Bennie Logan With the 67th overall pick, the fifth pick in the third round, the Eagles selected LSU defensive tackle Bennie Logan. The 23-year-old Logan, 6-2, 309, joins a new-look defensive line for the Eagles.

Here's the scouting report on Logan, courtesy of DraftInsider.net's Tony Pauline:

Positive: Explosive, one-gap defensive linemen who projects as a 3-technique tackle at the next level. Explodes off the snap with a terrific first step, effectively uses his hands to protect himself and fires through the gaps to make plays behind the line of scrimmage. Plays with terrific pad level, displays a quick change of direction, and easily gets out to the flanks to make plays. Breaks down well, fluid if asked to twist or stunt, and covers a decent amount of area.

Negative: Possesses an average closing burst of speed. Marginal pass rusher. Easily controlled at the point of attack by single blocker.

Analysis: Logan is a penetrating tackle with an explosive style and the ability to make plays in every direction. His play is reminiscent of former LSU defensive lineman Glenn Dorsey and Logan will succeed at the next level if placed in the proper system.
