For BYU, the four players who are projected to be drafted are outside linebacker Kyle Van Noy, wide receiver Cody Hoffman, defensive tackle Eathyn Manumaleuna and tight end Kaneakua Friel.

I think we should take a look Manumaleuna, the DT who is projected to go in the fifth round. Van Noy is projected to be selected in the first or possibly second round, and where the Texans are picking, I don’t see him becoming a member of the team.

Manumaleuna (6-2, 305) was selected to the FBS All-Independent First-Team by the media.

As for his 2013 season, according to the BYU Athletics site, he holds the school record for most games played at 54, so that proves he’s durable.

He also had a 10-tackle game in the season opener at Virginia and had six-tackle games against Washington, Texas and Utah.

He seems to have a very good football life thus far in his career. I want to see more from him in this game, but he is someone to keep an eye on as a potential fifth-round draft choice.
