Logan Stenberg weighs 317 pounds and could beat all of us in a foot race.
The former Kentucky offensive lineman and current NFL Draft prospect has been participating in the annual Draft Combine and the results from his effort on Friday are in.
Stenberg began the day with the 40-yard dash, which he finished with an official time of 5.3 seconds. The top offensive lineman performer in that category was former Iowa player Tristan Wirfs, who ran it in under 4.9 seconds. Most of the top-performing lineman that went through this drill posted times in the 5.0-5.1 second range, so Stenberg was a bit behind the pack in that area.

I don’t care that Logan Stenberg runs like he’s cosplaying QWOP I still love that dude.
It’s never pretty but he almost never loses reps anyway. Dude’s just a walking, talking brick shithouse out there.

It wasn’t just all about the 40-yard dash, however, especially not for a group of gentlemen that all likely wear XXL (or bigger) t-shirts.
Stenberg was put through multiple drills throughout the day, including the vertical jump, the 20-yard shuttle, and a few others.

The Alabama native was a top performer in both the 3-cone drill and the 20-yard shuttle, finishing 15th and 13th in those categories, respectively. Stenberg completed the 3-cone drill in exactly 8.0 seconds while finishing the 20-yard shuttle in 4.83 seconds.
In the remaining drills, Stenberg posted respectable numbers.
His vertical jump was listed at 26 inches and his broad jump at 104 inches. Results from his 60-yard shuffle will be updated once they are available.
The NFL’s Combine website currently grades Stenberg with an overall score of 5.98. According to their key, he fits in between the mold of “backup/special-teamer” (5.8-5.9) and “developmental traits-based prospect” (6.0). Here is the brief overview that was written about Stenberg, from NFL.com.
Scrappy, blue-collar guard who plays an assignment-oriented, dependable brand of football. Stenberg is lacking in both body composition and pure play strength and is much better at the first two phases of the block than the finishing phase. He’s smart and aware in pass protection, with adequate recovery athleticism to battle edge-to-edge rushers. He should be a capable NFL backup who can step in and hold up if he’s asked to step in and start.
The previously mentioned Iowa product, Wirfs, and former Alabama lineman/Lafayette high school product, Jedrick Wills, were arguably the two top performers among the offensive linemen positions, but Stenberg did impress.
