Draven often has a slightly larger longest killing spree than his counter does. On average, Draven receives a similar amount of damage to Karthus. This commonly reflects differing health capacities; however, it can also imply that the one champ has less mobility and thus is not able to flee from additional harm when engaged or poked.

Draven commonly racks up much more CS than Karthus. Champions who on average don't earn a lot of minion kills usually do not have to have much CS to be useful. They are able to scale well off their skills and stats alone. Yet, champions with plenty of CS, such as ADCs, usually have to have a lot of items to be useful. In either situation, work to beat the values shown here to do well.
