BYU's Kyle Van Noy and Cody Hoffman will play in this weekend's Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., hoping to raise their draft stock. Van Noy is projected to be selected in the first two rounds, while Hoffman is projected to be taken in the fifth or six rounds.
According to Dane Brugler, an NFLDraftScout.com senior analyst, Van Noy's stock is rising.
"A jack-of-all-trades linebacker, Van Noy is a smart, versatile linebacker who scratches and crawls his way to the pocket," Brugler writes. "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."
Last year's Senior Bowl proved to be mutually beneficial for both the Detroit Lions and BYU defensive lineman Ziggy Ansah.
The Lions' staff coached the South squad, which featured Ansah. After Ansah's impressive performance in the Senior Bowl, Detroit made him the No. 5 overall pick in the April NFL draft. Watch Ziggy's Senior Bowl highlights here.
Crew Ainge, son of BYU legend Danny Ainge, said he will go on a mission before playing college basketball.
