Strengths

Stocky, well-built tackle with a strong first step and powerful upper-body for bull-rushing...spent a lot of his senior season in a two-gap style, asked to absorb double-teams...but has a lot of un-tapped potential as a pass-rusher...active player that pursues well...a respected locker-room presence and intense in practice.

Weaknesses

Not very polished in technique, and would spend long stretches relying solely on the bull-rush and not effectively using his hands to shed...this led to him getting overwhelmed at times...not as bulky as the typical NFL two-gap tackle...would get lazy in his technique at times and play high...will need to develop a more well-rounded skillset.

Verdict

Logan is a well-balanced tackle with enough strength to play the run and the quickness to push the pocket. Projects as a three-technique DT in a 4-3 scheme, though some have speculated that he could possibly play the nose in a one-gap scheme such as the Tampa-Two or Wade Phillips' style of 3-4. Logan is a hard worker that should be able to step into a rotation early, but not as a starter. Still, he has the ability to get to that point in time, and should be off the draft board in the first three rounds.
