2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Kyle Van Noy, OLB, BYU
Van Noy ran a 4.71 at the Combine, but he is pro-ready and a safe choice. Overcame injuries late in his senior season to lead BYU on defense. Excellent technique. Dependable gap discipline and fundamentals. Always seems to be in the right position. Very good in coverage. Plays well downhill. Can take on blockers with relative ease. Not a big hitter, nor a pass rusher. Defenses tended to run away from him as a senior.
Sufficient range against the run. Good first step. Smooth movements with very little wasted motion in coverage. Can tackle guys dependably in the open field. Good closing burst to bring down ball-carriers.
Could have likely been a first rounder last season, but slips down into Round 2 in the 2014 NFL Draft due to athletic/physical limitations.
