Any early entrants into the NFL Draft have less than two weeks to make their decisions with the Jan. 14 early entrant deadline looming.
For Kentucky Football, we know running back Benny Snell is planning on entering the draft as a junior, but junior OL Logan Stenberg is mulling the decision as well, requesting a draft evaluation ahead of the deadline.
Mark Stoops says he’s provided NFL draft information to Juniors Benny Snell and Logan Stenberg. No word on if either will return for their senior seasons. Also said 11 seniors have a chance to be drafted in the upcoming NFL draft. pic.twitter.com/iThDlMzqqB— Aaron Gershon (@agershon99) December 7, 2018
Stenberg, the junior from Madison, Alabama, was part of Kentucky’s 2015 recruiting class as a three-star prospect, but redshirted as a freshman. In his redshirt freshman year in 2016, Stenberg carved himself a role into the offensive line rotation and was a key part of that offensive line unit that paved the way for Boom Williams and Benny Snell to each eclipse 1,000 yards rushing.
The next year, as a sophomore, Stenberg won a starting spot at left guard and started all 13 games. Since taking over the role full-time, he’s been a staple on the interior of Kentucky’s offensive line.
Stenberg, who stands at 6’6 and 320 pounds, certainly has the size to be an offensive guard in the NFL, but it will be interesting to see what kind of feedback Stenberg received.
The NFL Draft will be held April 25-27 in Nashville.
