If you are anything like me you sat through last night's NFL Draft first round hoping to see a team prove all the experts wrong (except for Mel Kiper who had Van Noy to New Orleans at 27) wrong and take Kyle Van Noy. Unfortunately that did not happen, so we will have to wait and see where Van Noy is picked tonight as the 2014 NFL Draft continues with the second and third rounds.
There just may be a silver lining to this story though. Mocking the Draft's second round mock draft that came out this morning has Van Noy re-joining forces with former teammate Ziggy Ansah in Detroit with the 45th pick. How awesome would that storyline be? We really only got one year of Van Noy and Ansah wreaking havoc on opposing offenses together in college and that just wasn't enough. Count me as one who would love to see what that duo could do together in the NFL.
Outside of Van Noy, it will probably be another quiet night for the NFL hopefuls from BYU, as Cody Hoffman, Daniel Sorensen, Eathyn Manumaleuna, Kaneauka Friel, Uani Unga, and Spencer Hadley are not expected to go until the late rounds or not be drafted at all.
