Van Noy is a versatile defender that could play either outside or inside linebacker, and Green Bay could use help at either position.

In 2012, as a junior Van Noy recorded 13 sacks as an edge rusher and has the explosiveness to be an effective 3-4 outside linebacker.

In his senior season, Van Noy dropped back in coverage often and showed he has the athleticism to cover backs and tight ends in space. He also recorded a pair of interceptions and five pass deflections and was one of his team’s top tacklers.

Van Noy is an early round prospect flying under the radar. He may slip down into the second round, so the Packers could roll the dice and see if he falls to them on day two.

However, if Van Noy impresses at the NFL Combine and Senior Bowl, his draft stock should skyrocket and he may be deserving of the 21st overall selection.
