Pick (Overall): 5 (67)

Pick Analysis: Not many defensive tackles wear the No. 18 jersey -? and in Logan?s case, it?s a particularly important honor. Over the past decade, the number has been awarded by the coaching staff to the player who best represents what it means ?to be a Tiger on and off the field.? San Diego Chargers third-round pick Brandon Taylor also wore No. 18 for the Bayou Bengals, following in the footsteps of former Chargers fullback Jacob Hester and the initial wearer, 2003 BCS championship quarterback Matt Mauck. Logan isn't going to be one to put up gaudy statistics, but his strength in the middle of the line won?t elude the eyes of scouts looking for a starting tackle.

The two-time Class 2A first-team All-State pick from Louisiana dominated his high school competition (116 tackles, 30 for loss, 15 sacks as a senior), but was only a three-star recruit as a defensive end. He redshirted the 2009 season and played just three games in 2010, posting only five tackles that season playing behind a deep, talented front four as he added the necessary weight to play in the middle in the SEC. He stepped into a starting role in 2011 next to 2012 first-round pick Michael Brockers, using his increased bulk and maintained athleticism to rack up 57 stops, 6.5 for loss and three sacks, saving his best for last with six tackles, 1.5 for loss and a sack against Alabama in the team?s BCS title game loss. In his junior season, Logan totaled 45 tackles, with 5.5 for loss, and two sacks.
