2024 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Kenny Logan Jr.

Kenny Logan Jr. (DB – Kansas)

6’0″ – 205 lbs.

Background:

Played just 53 snaps back in 2019 before taking over a starting role the following year (eight of nine games played) and finishing with 58 tackles, two interceptions, and three breakups. Followed that up with 110 tackles, an interception, and six breakups in 2021, then 106 tackles, two interceptions, and five breakups in 2022. This past year, totaled 95 tackles (seven for loss), a pick-six, and six breakups.

Positives:

Highly productive tackling machine with four years of starting experience. Typically lines up as one of the team’s two high safeties, but is more frequently in a robber role, rather than a high zone; is also able to shade over the slot or drop down into the box. Active pre-snap communicator. Shows quick feet when backpedaling to depth in high zones, with adequate fluidity when flipping his hips. Has the sort of polished recognition skills you’d expect given his experience. Does a good job of staying over the top of route combinations to limit big plays. Very willing to come up and support the run, diagnosing pretty quickly. Shows good toughness to take on blocks, with good extension. Pretty reliable wrap tackler with what looks like an above-average radius. Breaks down well in the open field. Has also served as the team’s kick returner, with one career touchdown.

Negatives:

Overall speed and explosiveness are closer to adequate. Doesn’t squeeze the top of in-breaking routes as much as you’d like when working from the slot. Would like to see a bit more conservatism in the way he plays the run, commensurate with his responsibilities as the last line of defense. First tendency is to get downhill, so can be pulled up by play-fakes at times. Doesn’t shy away from taking on blocks, but it’d be nice to see him try and work around them more frequently; build is a bit top-heavy, and contact balance can be an issue at times. Can struggle to disengage.

Summary:

A highly experienced safety who has been one of the most productive safeties in college football over the past four years, and that kind of production is hard to ignore. May not be the fastest or strongest safety around, but his polished diagnostic skills keep him around the football. Can struggle to hold up when taking on blocks in run support, but his reliable tackling, and schematic versatility should help him draw mid-round interest from teams. Sort of a “jack-of-all-trades” type.

Projection: Round 5-6
