2014 NFL Draft profile - Kyle Van Noy

2014 NFL Draft

Name:  Kyle Van Noy

School:  BYU

Position:   Outside Linebacker

Age:  23

Height:  6-3

Weight:   243

Positives:  Kyle Van Noy is one of the most versatile linebackers in the 2014 NFL Draft.  He’s a solid pass rusher, and very fluid in his movements.  This allows him to attack quickly and without much hesitation against the run, and he runs well enough to be effective when dropping into overage as well.

Negatives:  Although Van Noy has good pass rushing skills, he’s not a particularly dominant pass rusher.  He lacks a variety of moves, and relies more on his motor and athleticism when attacking the quarterback.  Also, he doesn’t fit perfectly into a 3-4 defense, as he might be a better inside linebacker prospect than outside.

Impact on the Redskins:  Van Noy would impact the Redskins more initially as an inside linebacker next season than on the outside, where they already have two good starters in Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan.  Van Noy is versatile and quick enough to play inside in a 3-4 defense, and the Redskins have a need there.  He also helps the Redskins by adding another pass rusher.

Where the Redskins might pick him:  The Redskins would have to pick Kyle Van Noy with their second round pick # 34, as he most certainly won’t be on the board after the second round.

Other teams interested:   Minnesota Vikings, Jacksonville Jaguars,  Atlanta Falcons
