— Former BYU linebacker Kyle Van Noy has debuted on Mel Kiper's Big Board.

"...You go back through more tape — it really is endless — as I did recently on BYU, and you realize you missed something. Kyle Van Noy jumps onto the Big Board this week because he's a player I simply didn't have graded high enough," Kiper writes. "He's so quick, with such good instincts, and sees and reacts so well, he often looks like he's playing the game faster than everyone else. I had him as a likely second-round pick (I still see that as a possibility, as I may have him higher than most), but he's good enough to go in Round 1 based on my evaluation.
