2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Karl Klug, DE, Iowa

University of Iowa's Karl Klug is a 2011 NFL Draft defensive line prospect for the Hawkeyes. Klug's biggest asset, aside from his large frame, is his versatility. At the next level, he could fit in almost any team's defensive line. This season for the Hawkeyes, he's been playing defensive tackle but he can play defensive end in a 3-4 defense as well. Klug is a tall prospect with long arms and a good push for getting into the backfield. He is quick for a tackle and explosive enough to play a containment role as a defensive end.

Klug began the season under the radar for most draft analysts, but has steadily garnered more serious attention due to a very good senior season. He will need to continue to add good weight as he is a bit undersized if he is still playing at 270 pounds.

His greatest attribute is his elite motor. Fundamentals and technique can be coached up, but his "want-to" is off the charts.

He has a good explosion off the line of scrimmage and gets his hands on offensive linemen very quickly. Stays low with his pad level, allowing him to use leverage to his favor. Able to take on blockers and keep his balance well.

Karl Klug currently projects as a fifth round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
