Kyle Van Noy
Kyle Van Noy has proven to be one of the most versatile defenders in the NFL.
He has accumulated 35 solo tackles, 6.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, 6.5 sacks, and has even scored a touchdown. His ability to rush the passer is extraordinary, even though he isn’t primarily used as such, as he has 51 total pressures.
Van Noy has done it all for New England’s defense, which is arguably the best in the entire NFL.
However, he is in line for what is considered the most prestigious honor in the league: being named the Walter Payton Man Of The Year. This award honors those players who take the extra mile for their communities through things like volunteering and charity work. Winning this would overshadow missing out on a Pro Bowl nod.
