Analysis:

Bill Belichick built the Patriot's dynasty through the draft. He focused on smart players that were eager to learn. That mentality worked as the Patriots won three Super Bowls in four years (2001, 2003, 2004). Kyle Van Noy meets Belichick's description because what he lacks in athleticism, he makes up with smarts.

Van Noy is a very instinctive player who displays quick reactions. He shows good effort in his pursuit and locates the ball quickly. He has excellent play recognition. Van Noy's fluidity makes him very effective in coverage (he had 7 interceptions in three years).

Van Noy's biggest weakness is that he is not an elite athlete. He overuses the bull rush technique coming off the edge. Von Noy gets to the ball using instincts, not physicality. He runs around blockers instead of taking them head on. Von Noy is not a great tackler and lacks the size to make explosive hits. He was not as productive in 2013, but a large part of that is the loss of Ziggy Ansah. Ansah was often double-teamed freeing up Van Noy.
