George Karlaftis agrees to four-year contract

The Chiefs and first-round draft pick DE George Karlaftis have agreed to terms on a four-year, fully-guaranteed deal.

Fantasy Impact

Karlaftis is a pressure-first defensive end who struggles against the run but is prolific at attacking quarterbacks. He is projected to start immediately for the Chiefs, a team that finished eighth in overall defense last season.

George Karlaftis III selected No. 30 by Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs have selected EDGE George Karlaftis with the No. 30 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

The Chiefs remain focused on defense after taking cornerback Trent McDuffie earlier in the first round. Now, they add Karlaftis to the end of their defensive line. Karlaftis plays with a high motor, explosive hands and hips, and great stamina. He struggles drastically against the run, but Kansas City will look to take advantage of his prolific ability to get outside and pressure the quarterback.
