KC Chiefs Draft Purdue EDGE/DE George Karlaftis with No. 30 Pick

With the No. 30 overall pick in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs have selected Purdue EDGE/defensive end George Karlaftis. Karlaftis immediately projects to make an impact on the Chiefs’ defensive front, in addition to being the team’s most highly drafted building block on the edges of their defensive line for years to come.

Before adding Karlaftis, the Chiefs entered the 2022 NFL Draft with a massive issue at their defensive end/EDGE position. Even after a short-term restructuring of the contract of veteran defensive end Frank Clark, the Chiefs’ depth chart was extremely sparse.
