Eagles coach Chip Kelly said NT Bennie Logan "may be playing as well as anybody on our defensive line right now."
Considering the other members of the defensive line are Fletcher Cox and Cedric Thornton, that is high praise indeed. The Eagles' stout defensive line anchors one of the best front sevens in the league. Philadelphia should be difficult to run on this season. Sep 7 - 8:09 AM

Eagles NT Bennie Logan led all defensive tackles in solo tackles last season with 44.

Also from Pro Football Focus, Logan was second among 81 qualifying defensive tackles in solo stops (solo tackles that constitute an offensive failure). The tackle stat has become mostly meaningless in the football world, so these numbers give us a better idea. The Eagles' run defense allowed just 3.7 YPC last season (fourth in the NFL), and Philly was one of four teams not to allow a 40-yard run.

Eagles second-year NT Bennie Logan is tipping the scales at 6'2/319 after adding ten pounds this offseason.

Logan is still "undersized" for a typical 3-4 nose tackle, but that is by design. "The way we play our defense, you've got to be able to run," said Logan, who does not feel he could accomplish what his coaches want him to do at 330-plus pounds. Logan will begin the season as Philadelphia's starting nose tackle.

Eagles GM Howie Roseman praised second-year NT Bennie Logan and said he has a bright future.

"He has a frame that can easily withstand 320 pounds," Roseman said. "He's got 34-inch arms. He has really big hands. His wingspan is actually six inches bigger than his height." Logan, the 67th pick in last year's draft, started the final eight games of his rookie season and was a solid run stopper despite his slender frame. He can also play five-technique in the Eagles' 3-4 scheme.

Eagles signed No. 67 overall pick DT Bennie Logan to a four-year contract.

Logan has been used all over the field during OTAs. He's been a defensive tackle when the Eagles are in a 4-3, a five-technique in their 3-4 and has also seen time as a down lineman next to a standing rusher. Logan has a chance to make an impact as a rotational player this season.

Eagles selected LSU DL Bennie Logan with the No. 67 overall pick.

Logan (6-foot-2, 329) was an up-and-down "flash" player in LSU's 4-3 defense, playing three-technique tackle between Keke Mingo and Sam Montgomery. He recorded 12.5 career tackles for loss and five sacks. Logan's motor runs hot and cold and he lacks an elite get-off at the line of scrimmage, but he could be a strong No. 3 tackle as part of a rotation. It will be interesting to see where Logan, who is blessed with nice length, plays in the Eagles' new three-man front. He'll likely compete for snaps at right end and rush from the inside in the nickel.
