Comparison

Ryan Kerrigan Washington Commanders

Upside frame that could add weight and transition inside or stay lean with added muscle as a big edge defender. Sufficient length and bulk. Raw athlete with limited football experience. Diverse athletic background generates unique set of traits and a rapid developmental curve. Has suddenness off the snap, uses length instinctively and plays with great effort. Combine testing numbers are elite. Explosive athlete but still learning how to operate mechanically. Has tendency to play high and can get away with it. Hand usage needs polish. Best defensive prospect to come out of Indiana since Jaylon Smith. Impact power five defender that may need time to develop initially but with patience has first-round NFL upside.

Athletic Background

George Karlaftis was selected as the Defensive Player of the Year by USA Today and was selected to the All-American Bowl. Two-time Indiana state shot put champion. American Family Insurance Defensive Player of the Year. 2018 IndyStar Mr. Football Defensive Lineman of the Year.
