Zion Logue: 2024 NFL Draft Profile, Projection, Prediction

Palmber-Thombsby:Palmer Thombs04/20/24


Few programs have been better at putting players into the NFL during the Kirby Smart era than Georgia, and this year’s draft is no different. Brock Bowers, Amarius Mims and Ladd McConkey are likely to go early. There’s the mid-round guys like Kamari Lassiter, Javon Bullard and Tykee Smith and the late-round steals like Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint, Sedrick Van Pran and a pair of running backs – Kendall Milton and Daijun Edwards.

Looking to hit double-digits for a third consecutive year, the Bulldogs sent 11 to the NFL Combine earlier in the process. A couple more worked out at UGA’s Pro Day. To preview it all for you, DawgsHQ takes an individual look at Georgia’s players in the draft pool, recapping their career in red and black and providing the latest projections (and a prediction of our own) for where they’ll fall on draft night.

Zion Logue

The first defensive player we’re taking a look at, Logue spent a total of five years in Athens. His career started back in 2019, and he played a combined seven games in his first two years. He did manage an impressive five-tackle performance against South Carolina in 2020, earning more attention as Georgia headed into 2021.

Playing behind the likes of Jordan Davis, Devonte Wyatt and Jalen Carter on the interior, Logue still managed to make an appearance in every game during the 2021 season as Georgia won the first of its two straight national championships. He finished with 11 tackles and three pressures that season. Then, in 2022, he made his first career start and had a big impact for the Bulldogs on their way to a second title. After recording a sack against Auburn in 2021, Logue had three tackles and recovered a fumble against the Tigers in 2022. He also forced one in UGA’s win over Samford earlier in the year.

After starting 10 games and recording a career-high 17 tackles this past season, Logue’s career totals come out to 52 tackles including 28 solo stops and 4.5 for loss. He managed 1.5 sacks, three pass deflections and the 2022 involvement on a pair of fumbles.

Palmer’s Prediction: A big interior defensive lineman listed at 6-foot-5, 310 pounds, the Lebanon, Tenn. native has a shot to get picked. While most don’t project him to do so, the Georgia brand – especially on the defensive line – and his size could mean a team falls in love with him. After all, it only takes one. My prediction: Logue doesn’t hear his name called but does field several offers as an undrafted free agent. Sometimes that’s even better because while the moment of having your name pop up on the screen lasts forever, the fit with certain teams that like you but don’t have the picks can result in a much better match. Logue is a capable defensive lineman, and teams will recognize that. He gets snatched up quickly as an undrafted free agent and gets a shot at playing professional football.
