(AP Photo/Kelvin Kuo) TEMPE, Ariz. — There are certain traits coaches look for.When it comes to Bruce Arians, speed is at the top of the list.Therefore, it makes perfect sense that Arizona spent its second fifth-round pick, No. 179 overall, on North Carolina running back T.J. Logan.Logan, after all, posted the fastest 40-yard dash time at the Combine for a running back at 4.37 seconds, and the sixth-fastest time of all players.“T.J. Logan was a guy that we had focused, and Coach and I had talked about, since the Combine,” Cardinals GM Steve Keim said. “Not only did his foot speed and his explosiveness excite us, but the things that he can do in our offense — where we ask our backs out of the backfield to catch the football — when you watch tape of T.J., he really jumps out at you with the flare routes and some of the different things he does in space.”last_img
