Washington Redskins Draft Profile: Daniel Sorensen, SS, Brigham Young

Chris Nicoll-USA TODAY Sports

Hogs Haven draft profile on strong safety Daniel Sorensen. Should the Redskins draft him in the 2014 draft?

Daniel Sorensen

Strong Safety

Height: 6’1", Weight: 205 lbs.

BYU

Strengths: Sorensen is an interesting prospect that has risen up draft boards since the Combine. His measureables on the drills were better than most were expecting, recording a 4.67 40-yard dash, a 6.47 3-cone drill, and 32 broad jump. Sorensen has good size and plays the run well overall. His coverage skills are solid, with 8 career interceptions at BYU. Daniel also has experience on special teams.

Weaknesses: While Sorensen’s coverage skills are solid, they are not elite. In his game against Texas, he had a tendency to not turn his head around when trying to break up a pass play. At the NFL level, that is an easy flag for pass interference. While most strong safeties have issues in coverage, the Redskins do not need another strong safety with coverage problems.

Bottom Line: Sorensen looks like a good player with some upside. He is likely going to be drafted in the later rounds. His good showing at the combine could get him drafted as high as the 5th round. Sorensen also played linebacker his freshman season, which is interesting to me. While watching him play, he looked like he would be a really good linebacker. He is big enough to cover tight ends and would have above average cover skills for a linebacker. The Redskins need more linebackers, so Sorensen would be an interesting draft selection for the team.

Projected round: 5

Team he fits best on: Redskins, Broncos, Giants, and Titans
