NFL Draft Prospects to Watch this Saturday

1 of 4

If you love the NFL Draft, there’s never a time that’s too early to watch prospects. This year, it appears the Bengals will be drafting in the 20’s and many draftniks are already looking forward to the transition from the end of the season to draft season. Here are some players you should watch this week that may fit well with the Bengals.

Kyle Van Noy, OLB, BYU

The Cougars are at home against Idaho State, and this could be a game where Van Noy is licking his chops. While watching BYU last year to get a feel for Ezekial Ansah, Van Noy impressed greatly that one couldn’t help but watch him more and more. He has only record 4 sacks thus far, but he is extremely athletic and plays the pass well. Could be the athletic, play-making linebacker that Bengals fans have been hoping for.
