Falcons Close Year’s Draft Picks With Dawg Selection

The Falcons closed out their 2024 Draft selections by picking a defensive tackle from the Georgia Bulldogs.

They picked Zion Logue for their #197th pick.

6’5″ , 314 lb. Logue had 10 starts out of 14 appearances at Sandford Stadium. He got 17 tackles, 2.5 for loss, 0.5 sack, and two pass breakups.

Although Louge’s sack numbers are miniscule in Athens, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have potential for the Falcons. According to Falcons Senior Reporter Tori McElhaney, Logue, when teamed with Falcons defensive veterans, can make a difference for the team.

“Logue brings a size factor at 314 pounds that pairs well not only with Grady Jarrett and David Onyemata but also with the two new faces in his own draft class of Ruke Orhorhoro and Brandon Dorlus,” she wrote.

On the NFL’s Draft Page, Logue‘s prospect grade is 5.67. At the Combine early this year, he ran 5.14 seconds in the 40-yard dash. His vertical jump was 29 inches, his broad jump was 9’ 1″, and he did 4.92 seconds in the 20-yard shuttle.

Logue’s former coach at Georgia, Kirby Smart wrote on X (Twitter): “Excited to watch you with the Atlanta Falcons. They got a great man & a great force in the trenches. GO DAWGS!!”
