Pick (Overall): 11 (142)

Pick Analysis: 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.
