San Diego Chargers scouts are getting around during the Senior Bowl practices. It is a great time for teams to interview some of the players and to see them in action against some good competition. We mentioned BYU LB Kyle Van Noy as a player to watch for during the Senior Bowl earlier in the week and the Chargers scouts met with him yesterday, per Walter Football.

Van Noy measures in at 6-foot-3, 244 pounds. He is an athletic and versatile linebacker and is projected to be drafted between the first and the second round. He has been one of the top linebackers during the Senior Bowl practices and has been standing out. Here are some of the remarks from practice:

1. Kyle Van Noy has been great on field/off. Scout told me he could be most intelligent of LB’s here. Taught Ziggy Ansah the game at BYU.

So far, Kyle Van Noy has been top LB in each drill. Picking up RBs, physical/tight with TEs, looking balanced throughout. #SeniorBowl

If the Chargers were to select Van Noy, he would compete for the starting job at outside linebacker. We would have a young group of hungry linebackers for a while. Van Noy would join Manti Te’o, Donald Butler and Melvin Ingram on that 3-4 defense. It would be fun to watch that group grow together.
