Kyle Van Noy did a little bit of everything on defense at BYU.

He played linebacker and rushed the quarterback, dropped into coverage and even lined up occasionally on the defensive line.

If his first week in the NFL is any indication, he’ll have even more responsibilities with the Detroit Lions.

“I fit in all sorts of sets,” Van Noy said today after Day 2 of rookie minicamp. “I’ve been going in at the (strong side linebacker) position as well on a sub team, so a little bit of everything. A do-it-all kind of ‘backer.”

Van Noy, the Lions’ second-round pick, is expected to start at strong side linebacker this fall, and defensive coordinator Teryl Austin said last week Van Noy should be a three-down player as a rookie.

Since returning starters Stephen Tulloch and DeAndre Levy rarely come off the field, that means Van Noy will have some responsibilities as a stand-up defensive end in passing situations in the Lions’ nickel defense.

Jason Jones, who’s returning from a season-ending knee injury, is expected to start at left end, but can play inside at tackle in nickel packages.
