Logan Ryan, CB, Rutgers
Ryan (5-11, 191), selected 83d overall in the third round, was a first-team All-American by Pro Football Weekly in 2012, recording 94 tackles, four interceptions, and 17 passes defensed. He's a strong and confident young man who played behind Devin McCourty when he first attended Rutgers. He was Academic All-Big East his senior and sophomore years. He could be the team's fourth cornerback right away.
He said it: “I think the reason why Rutgers guys have success at the Patriots is because we’re built to play football on the field, but live like a professional off the field. That’s something that we’re taught, and that’s something that I’m going to bring to the Patriots organization and hopefully help contribute.”
