Eagles select TE Ertz and DT Logan on Day 2 of draft

The Philadelphia Eagles selected Stanford tight end Zach Ertz in the second round and LSU defensive tackle Bennie Logan in the third round of the NFL draft.

Ertz, a 6-foot-5, 249-pound All-American, was chosen Friday night with the 35th overall pick. The Eagles took offensive tackle Lane Johnson at No. 4 in the first round.

Ertz has drawn comparison to Dallas Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten. He's considered a physical blocker, tough runner and solid route-runner. Ertz had 112 catches for 1,434 yards and 15 touchdowns in 37 games at Stanford.

Once again, the Eagles passed on West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith, who dropped out of the first round.

Logan, 6-foot-2 and 309 pounds, was chosen Friday night with the 67th overall pick. Logan had two sacks, forced two fumbles and made 45 tackles last year.

Logan is considered a strong rusher with good upper-body strength.
