George Karlaftis Draft Profile


George Karlaftis is an absolute load on the defensive front. He possesses great power in his bull rush, which will translate to the NFL game. This strength also makes him versatile, since he could slide inside and hold his own. To go along with this power, Karlaftis also brings a quick first step, strong hands and relentless energy.


Karlaftis doesn’t have the length of most elite edge rushers, so he can struggle against long offensive linemen. This makes it tough to get opponents’ hands off of him as a bull-rusher. This can also lead to Karlaftis playing outside of his skills, trying to be a speed-rusher when he is not that type of player. Last season also showed that he needs to convert more of his pressures into sacks.
