Logan Ryan: Video Highlights for Former Rutgers CB

0 of 5

    Logan Ryan will forgo his senior year at Rutgers and make himself eligible for the 2013 NFL draft.

    The ultra-physical cornerback has been an All-Big East selection the last two seasons.  In 2012, Ryan made 94 tackles and defended 21 passes, of which he intercepted four.

    The 5'11", 190-pound defensive back is a solid tackler and has strong cover skills. The only knock on Ryan is his speed (4.53 40-yard dash) and because of this, he is projected to be selected in the third round.

    Here are some of Logan Ryan's top plays.

Interception vs. Cincinnati, 2012

1 of 5

    In the middle of the second quarter, with the Bearcats driving and in Rutgers territory, Logan Ryan intercepted a long pass at the Rutgers 3-yard line.  Rutgers won the game 10-3, making this one of the matchup's key plays.

    Ryan exhibited good timing and physicality, leaping in the air and stealing the ball from the receiver.

Interception vs. Iowa State, 2011

2 of 5

    With Rutgers leading 27-13 in the fourth quarter, an Iowa State drive, nearly at midfield, is ended by a Logan Ryan interception.  The Scarlet Knights went on to win the New Era Pinstripe Bowl in 2011.

    Ryan showed good instincts and hands by intercepting a quick slant and, essentially, putting the game out of reach for the Cyclones.

Interception vs. Pittsburgh, 2011

3 of 5

    With Rutgers leading Pittsburgh 27-10 in the fourth quarter, Logan Ryan made his second interception of the game and returned it for a touchdown.

    Logan exhibited good instincts and timing in "jumping" the route and exhausting any hope the Panthers had of a comeback.  The Rutgers standout also showed off his skills as a returner.

Interception vs. Connecticut, 2012

4 of 5

    Early in the first quarter, Logan Ryan intercepted a pass from Connecticut's Chandler Whitmer at the UConn 45-yard line.  Rutgers scored a field goal on the ensuing drive on their way to a 19-3 win.

    Ryan displayed good anticipation as he read Whitmer's eyes and created a turnover.

Interception vs. Arkansas, 2012

5 of 5

    With Rutgers leading 28-13, near the end of the third quarter, Logan Ryan intercepted a pass from Arkansas' Tyler Wilson in the end zone.  It was a huge play that helped the Scarlet Knights defeat the Razorbacks 35-26.

    Ryan exhibited good coverage, anticipation and receiving skills as he stayed in-bounds and prevented a touchdown.

    This was actually Ryan's second end-zone interception of the game as the first was ruled interference.  Regardless, Ryan showed good defensive awareness and strong, physical play.
