Logan Stenberg Turns Heads Before Arriving at the Senior Bowl

Senior Bowl festivities have begun in Mobile, Al. You will be able to watch the game Saturday at 2:30 p.m. ET on the NFL Network, but the most important work happens before the game is kicked off.

The important preparation phase of the event began Tuesday morning with the Underwear Olympics. Each player dropped to their drawers to be measured. Kentucky’s only representative in this year’s game, offensive guard Logan Stenberg, appears to fit the bill for NFL interior offensive linemen.

Height

6061

Weight

317

Hand

9 3/4”

Arm

33 1/8”

Wingspan

79 5/8”

Yes, NFL Combine-style height measurements are weird. In layman’s terms, Stenberg is 6 feet, 6 and 1/8 inches tall. Those are impressive.

A year ago Lonnie Johnson’s physical attributes popped off the page as soon as he stepped on the scene. His performance in Senior Bowl practice is a big reason why he jumped into the second round of the NFL Draft. Stenberg was receiving praise before he even arrived. From The Draft Network:

It’s time to sound the alarms because I found the best guard in the 2020 draft. Kentucky’s Logan Stenberg is a big, long mauler in the run game who has also been as consistent as any interior offensive lineman in the country as a pass protector. He’s started every game the last three seasons for the Wildcats, and if there is one word to describe his play on tape, it’s nasty.

Stenberg has heavy hands and an unparalleled mean streak that typically results in several pancake blocks each game. Many SEC fans know Stenberg for his overaggressive nature and tendency to draw personal foul penalties, but if I’m being honest, I love that kind of nasty attitude and toughness. Other SEC players have called him the most hated player in the conference, and I can’t blame them. Stenberg catches bodies every game as both a run blocker and pass protector looking for work.

They aren’t the only folks admiring the work Stenberg put on film.

The Senior Bowl isn’t the ideal format for an offensive guard to thrive. One-on-one drills aren’t exactly game-like situations at that position and in a team setting it’s difficult to excel if you have less than a week to develop continuity. Even so, this is Stenberg’s first significant opportunity to stand out in front of NFL scouts. Based on all the early hype, it will not take him long to move up draft boards.

    Sure would love to see him in Cincinnati. Last I saw they had him going in the 3rd round with the 90th pick. I think he could make a big jump though after the senior bowl.

    He will probably make a better pro.

    The term “turns heads” is used way too much on this site. That is all.

    Stenberg killed more UK drives than any opposing defense this year.
