G Logan Stenberg – Grade: C-

After a strong start to the draft, Bob Quinn finally made his first mediocre pick in the fourth round, drafting Kentucky guard Logan Stenberg.

While Jonah Jackson didn’t fill every need on the front five, Stenberg isn’t going to provide much to fulfill those remaining needs. If you were going to draft offensive lineman back-to-back, this definitely wasn’t the way to do it.

Standing at 6-foot-6 and a little over 320 pounds, Stenberg is a men amongst kids in terms of stature. In the run game, Stenberg is a beast. He’s your typical “play through the whistle” type of lineman.

Unlike Jackson however, Stenberg struggles in pass coverage. He tends to be caught flat-footed more than he should, and his recovery skills aren’t the best. His lateral quickness is poor as well. His lack of effectiveness in pass coverage may be due to the fact that he has minimal experience at it because of the way Kentucky’s offense is.

This isn’t the worst pick in the world by any means. Stenberg still has qualities that could help the Lions. Despite being one-dimensional, he’s really good at the one dimension he has.

Expect him to be inserted in short-yardage or goal line situations. His size is critical in those scenarios. His strengths in run-blocking shouldn’t be overlooked. Not the best pick from the Detroit Lions, but it could’ve been worse.
