Not only does Logan work well with his hands in pass-rush situations, he's strong enough to use a bull rush to get through offensive linemen. It's good that Logan has this technique because he's not quick off the snap. Per Hope:
Although Logan only had five sacks in two seasons at LSU, he is one of the best pass-rushing tackles in the 2013 draft class.
Logan does not have a great first step as a rusher, but he has good quickness and acceleration. He combines that athleticism with active hands to beat blockers inside and penetrate with pressure into the pocket.
Logan can sometimes be caught jumping at ball-carriers instead of maintaining gap security. This overaggressive play can cost him against agile running backs. Via Hope:
Logan is not a dominant run-stopper. He does not overpower opposing offensive linemen and at times gets driven back off of the line of scrimmage.
He is not a liability, however, in run defense. He does a good job of controlling his gap, picking up blockers to free up his teammates and has good gap discipline when a play is in the backfield. He can shoot gaps to make stops in the backfield with his quickness off the snap, and he can also make plays back off the line of scrimmage.
Overall, Logan ranks as the No. 13 DT prospect in the 2013 NFL draft class.
