Lions select OG Logan Stenberg in fourth round of NFL Draft

After trading back in the fourth round with the Las Vegas Raiders, the Detroit Lions select offensive guard Logan Stenberg at pick No. 121 overall.

With the Lions giving up their 109th selection, they received the 121st and 172nd spots from Mike Mayock and Jon Gruden.

Coming out of Kentucky, the 6-foot-6, 317-pound Stenberg is known as being one of the best run-blockers in the class. He was first-team All-SEC in 2019. However, Stenberg has also only allowed a total of one quarterback pressure the last two seasons in the SEC.

One downside to his physical play, he was called for a whopping 14 penalties in 2019 alone. That aspect of his game will surely need to be cleaned up.

Per Lance Zierlein of 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.”
