The Eagles have a new starting nose tackle.

The Eagles had their eye on youth when they made a move shortly being Tuesday's trade deadline. The trade of Isaac Sopoaga to New England has led to a shuffle on the depth chart. Rookie defensive tackle Bennie Logan is now listed as the starting nose tackle for the Eagles 3-4 defense.

Logan was a third-round pick in April and has flashed in limited action this season for Philadelphia. In eight games this season, the rookie has collected six tackles and two sacks. The youngster is now set to for the first start of his career against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. Logan is now one of three rookies to listed as a starter on the Eagles official depth chart and will be the fourth to start a game.

Fellow rookie Damion Square has taken Logan's spot as backup nose tackle. The undrafted free agent out of Alabama was active in the Eagles first two games this season, but has been a healthy inactive ever since. He will likely be a part of the regular defensive line rotation once again. Clifton Geathers and Cedric Thornton are also expected to rotate for nose tackle snaps during games as well.
