Take a guess.
I'm going with Bennie Logan, DT, LSU. An all-around great tackle who flashes dominance against some tough SEC competition. Seems like a Pete and John pick; considered a reach but fits what they're looking for in terms of leadership, work ethic, and upside.
Logan feels redundant to me, and he doesn't have any outstanding distinguishing characteristics. Is he any different or better than Scruggs, Howard, McDonald or McDaniel?
I think it's John Jenkins.
I think so.
Logan's stronger and more stout against the run than Scruggs who is a bit small to be a run-stuffer at the 285 lbs he played last year.
I'm not a big fan of McDonalds long-term. I think he's more a backup NT than 3-tech. Logan is a better pass rusher and his athleticism fits better at 3-tech than McDonalds.
Compared to Howard and McDaniel I can't really say because I haven't seen much of McDaniel and Howard only took a few snaps last year. I do think its fair to say that things don't look good for either of them long-term. McD signed only a one year vet minimum and Scruggs was the said to start over Howard as a replacement for Branch if need be.
Overall, I'd say its the fact Logan is a more well-rounded DT than the other guys that make him an upgrade and that he has a lot of upside left.
