George Karlaftis DE Purdue Draft Profile

Strengths
  • Offers some versatility, rushing from a two-and three-point stance with the playing speed to stand up in space. Flashes strength as a bull rusher and his energy doesn't plateau.
  • Has fluid footwork to redirect, reverse momentum and close with a burst. Regularly first off the ball with good snap anticipation.
  • Possesses accurate snap anticipation and timing to beat blockers off the edge.
  • Relentless and strong off the edge as a pass rusher when fresh. Gets under the pads of tackles to bull rush them into the backfield.
  • Flashes strength at the point of attack with active, violent hand use. Forceful with his upper body to defeat blocks. Strong hustle player.
Weaknesses
  • Rarely the first player off the snap, even when lined up over the ball, but his length, effort and short-area quickness still pressures double teams and helps penetrate gaps.
  • Never out of a play, but can get out of control and work himself away from the action.
  • Stands up well against the run but is very pursuit-conscious and will take unneeded wide angles.
  • Doesn't change direction easily. Can be late off the snap.
