PLAYERS
Karl Klug
Round 5, Pick 142
Position: DE
Class:  5Sr
School: Iowa
Conference: Big Ten
HT: 6-3
WT: 275
40 Time: 4.79
Biography: Two-year starter awarded all-Conference honors as a senior after posting 57/13/5.5. Junior totals included 65/13/4.

Positives: "Hard-working interior lineman who plays with a warrior-type mentality. Quick off the snap with a terrific first step, fires through the gaps up the field, and nicely redirects to ball carriers. Plays with good pad level, tough to knock off his feet, and a smart football player. Stays with assignments, uses his hands to protect himself, and wraps up tackling. Shows some explosiveness in his all-around game."

Negatives: Lacks bulk on the inside and can be easily controlled by opponents. More of a first-step lineman who lacks top strength at the point.

Analysis: "Klug is a competitive defender who gives effort in all areas yet lacks size and growth potential. He projects as a three-technique lineman in a conventional defense, and his competitive nature makes him an asset at the next level."

Projection: 6th
