Draft Scout Kyle Van Noy News
02/20/14 - 2014 NFL Draft Scout Pre-Combine Top 64 Prospects: 38. Kyle Van Noy, OLB, BYU, 6-3, 244, 4.68, 1-2...Instinctive linebacker with excellent reaction skills. Athletic enough in coverage, locates the ball quickly and provides good effort in pursuit. Impressed at the Senior Bowl with his fluidity in coverage by closing quickly to bat away multiple passes during practices. Must get stronger to cope with NFL blockers. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
01/22/14 - 2014 Senior Bowl Wednesday: OLBs Attaochu, Van Noy step up to pressure...Van Noy is a much more polished defender than Attaochu. He could have entered last year's draft and earned a top 64 selection. Some questioned his decision to return. In doing so, however, he's proven that his playmaking ways are a reflection of his terrific instincts and efficient athleticism rather than a reflection on the Cougars' level of competition.
The 6-foot-3, 244-pound Van Noy doesn't wow you with his frame or his straight-line speed but he ranks among the country's most pro-ready defenders because he does the little things so well. Van Noy shows excellent play recognition, takes on blockers with the correct shoulder (allowing him to slide off would-be blockers and into ball-carriers easily) and is equally effective slipping into coverage or sliding past offensive linemen on his way towards a tackle behind the line of scrimmage. He's subtle rather than physical, which draws complaints from some scouts but is deadly effective. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
01/21/14 - 2014 Senior Bowl: 10 observations from Monday's South practice...10. Of the linebackers, I was most impressed with BYU's Kyle Van Noy, who frequently is lauded for his ability at the line of scrimmage but showed off his fluidity and instincts in coverage by closing quickly to bat away multliple passes. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
01/20/14 - 2014 SENIOR BOWL, LINEBACKER: Arrow pointing up: Kyle Van Noy, BYU...A jack-of-all-trades linebacker, Van Noy is a smart, versatile linebacker who scratches and crawls his way to the pocket. He has tweener traits and needs to get stronger to better match-up with NFL blockers, but his twitchy athleticism and ability to drop in coverage will be appealing to 3-4 defenses. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
12/27/13 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: LB Kyle Van Noy will have one final college showcase before starting workouts for an NFL career, and likely first-round draft status. He played banged up throughout November, though the Cougars wouldn't let on as to how sore the senior was. Van Noy returned for his final season, surprising many teammates and coaches. He had a major game in last December's Poinsettia Bowl, and most figured his personal highlight reel was the end of his time in Provo, Utah.
"I don't think anyone can imagine the attention and exposure and pressure on him. I am trying to downplay it as much as possible," BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall said of Van Noy. "Teams do a nice job of accounting for him, and the visibility just keeps increasing. And so I am trying to support every way possible so he can just be a college football player and just play. But he's earned that because he is a really good player and his career has shown that." - The Sports Xchange
