“Relentless,” Karlaftis said when describing his style of play. “I get after the quarterback. I stop the run. I feel like I’m a three‐down player, I’m an all‐around player that can do anything and everything that’s asked of him, so I think I bring that to the table. I feel like I’m very, very consistent. I feel like my best football is ahead of me.
“I’ve been only playing football for about six to seven years now, so I’m really excited to develop under a great system, great teammates, great organization.”
