They’re basically the same size (Van Noy: 6’3 243 before he was drafted, Baun: 6’2.5, 240) except Baun’s arms are an inch longer. Baun tested better; he’s faster, slightly more explosive, and has better agility, but more importantly, the tape shows a guy who’s more instinctive than Van Noy was coming out, and who’s motor runs even hotter. Nobody in this draft class plays as hard as Zack Baun. And of course he was team captain.
We got to coach him in the Senior Bowl and I just can’t imagine Patricia and especially Quinn not falling hard for the guy.
