The New York Giants have several areas of need as they enter free agency and continue to prepare for the NFL Draft, and despite previous investment in several young defensive tackles, they may benefit from adding another. And one potential option could be LSU defensive tackle Bennie Logan, who admitted on Saturday at the NFL Combine that he's a fan of the Giants and defensive coordinator Perry Fewell.
"I'm a Giants fan. I love the Giants," Logan said. "Watching their defensive line…it's just very creative."
Still very raw, Logan is projected to be a mid-round or possibly late-round draft pick, which would allow the Giants to address some of their more serious needs before taking a chance on a project. And although landing in blue is far from a guarantee, General Manager Jerry Reese has a long history of taking fliers out on raw players and projects (see: Jason Pierre-Paul and Adrien Robison).
The Giants currently have four defensive tackles under contract, including Marvin Austin, Linval Joseph, Markus Kuhn and the recently re-signed Shaun Rogers. And given the health concerns surrounding Rogers, it would make sense for the team to add another DT via free agency or the draft.
Logan started 25 of his 30 career games at LSU, and although he's not a household name, he has the potential for a bright future in the NFL and is widely likely by everyone who knows him.
