Preparations in Mobile, Alabama are on underway. The Senior Bowl, a yearly event that typically features the best four-year players in college football, will once again see a wide variation of high-potential athletes.
The game is on Saturday and will start at 2:30 p.m. EST. It will be aired on the NFL Network.
The Kentucky Wildcats, a team that went just 8-5 on the 2019 season, capping the season with a victory in the Belk Bowl, will have one participant. That player will be none other than guard Logan Stenberg.
The Draft Network’s Jonah Tuls gave high praise for Stenberg, saying the former Wildcat could be the best guard in the upcoming NFL Draft.
“It’s time to sound the alarms because I found the best guard in the 2020 draft. Kentucky’s Logan Stenberg is a big, long mauler in the run game who has also been as consistent as any interior offensive lineman in the country as a pass protector. He’s started every game the last three seasons for the Wildcats, and if there is one word to describe his play on tape, it’s nasty. Stenberg has heavy hands and an unparalleled mean streak that typically results in several pancake blocks each game...... He earned a top-50 film grade on my board, and he will quickly assert himself as the most dominant guard in Mobile.”
However, while Stenberg did showcase a few impressive physical attributes, he’s still not gaining much respect among mock drafts. A recent NFL.com mock draft did not have Stenberg as a first-round pick, meaning he wasn’t in Daniel Jeremiah’s top-four offensive linemen.
Weighing in at 317 pounds and standing 6-foot-6, Stenberg is a force and has clearly started to make a name for himself. That said, a solid performance in the All-Star game-like Bowl will help him, but it’d be tough to see it boost his draft stock that much.
The combine should help Stenberg increase his draft value.
