For the second consecutive year, a Kentucky offensive lineman has been selected in the NFL Draft. A year after George Asafo-Adjei was taken in the seventh round, Logan Stenberg was drafted in the fourth round by the Detroit Lions with the No. 121 overall pick.

Hailing from the North Alabama town of Madison, Stenberg was a second team all-state selection and a  three-star prospect as a high school senior. Recruited by John Schlarman, Stenberg chose the Wildcats over offers from Troy and Southern Miss. Needless to say, he played at a much higher level than the Sun Belt and Conference-USA.

At Kentucky Stenberg was a four-year starter, paving the way for some of the most successful rushing seasons in program history. The Wildcats had a 1,000-yard rusher in each season Stenberg spent on the line, three of which came from the school’s new all-time leading rusher, Benny Snell. In Stenberg’s senior season the Wildcats set a school record for rushing yards. He did not allow a sack and recorded 95 pancakes on his way to earning Second Team All-American and First Team All-SEC honors.

In 2013 Larry Warford was Kentucky’s first offensive lineman drafted in 20 years, coincidentally, also taken by the Lions. Stenberg is starting a streak of UK offensive linemen in the draft that will not end anytime soon.

    Oh yeah my favorite team (I know it is sad my friends make fun of me for being a lions fan) gets a Kentucky boy… Hopefully he will have a career like Larry Warford did when he was drafted by the lions… I look forward to cheering for him while he blocks for Swift our second round pick

    I think he is a good fit for the Lions and what Patricia wants to do… He will be a great fit for the power run game that they do in Detroit… Last year before Stafford and Johnson got hurt they were playing very solid… Then after Johnson got hurt they didn’t have the personal to do it anymore… So I love the pick and am excited to cheer for him

    They miss holding penalties like they miss pass interference, he’ll be fine.
