Overview

Klug was a defensive tackle in college but is a 'tweener at the next level whose likely destination is as a strong-side end in a 4-3 or 3-4 five-technique. Has impressive quickness off the ball, incredibly active and fast hands, and outstanding competitiveness. Uses his get off to beat offensive lineman to their spot. Hands are always moving to get off blocks and pursue the ball-carrier or get in position to bat down passes. However, he lacks the explosiveness to consistently apply pressure and is not a dominant anchor. Klug may need to wait until Day 3, but he'll be drafted.

Analysis

Strengths

Klug has an interesting combination of size and speed. Displays great get off to penetrate or gain initial position. Uses his hands really well to get off blocks. Can chase down plays outside the hashes. Does a good job getting his hands up in passing lanes. A real junkyard dog who never quits.

Weaknesses

Does not possess the size or power to be an adequate anchor on the inside at the next level. Can not adequately take on the double team. Limited as a pass rusher. Lacks the pure strength to consistently bull rush. Lacks the burst to close after getting off blocks.
