Selection: 3rd round, 67th overall
Bennie Logan is an interesting choice for Chip Kelly, who will likely be implementing a form of 3-4 defense this season. Logan will mostly be used as a reserve nose tackle.
Logan ended the 2012 season with 45 tackles for the LSU Tigers. Of those 45, 5.5 were for a loss and he also added a couple of sacks.
At 6'2" and 309 pounds, Logan is laterally quick. His ability to move in between the gaps on the defensive line will be a welcomed sight in Philadelphia. While he is quick, Logan is also strong. He can put his head down as a nose tackle and go right at a potential blocker, pushing him back into the pocket and rushing the quarterback.
Logan isn't going to come in and start, as the Eagles brought in fellow nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga via free agency. That doesn't mean he can't contribute, though. Logan can learn from Sopoaga and spell him on the field when necessary.
Logan may turn a few heads in his rookie season with his ability to wrap-up and stop plays at the line of scrimmage, something the Eagles had trouble with last season. The Eagles' defense will feature a lot of movement around the line, a perfect fit for Logan.
Logan doesn't really get to the quarterback too often, though, and had some trouble getting off blocks in college which could be a red flag in the NFL.
Look for Bennie Logan to serve as a solid backup nose tackle who will come in to games and clog interior rushing lanes at a fairly consistent rate.
