Daniel Sorensen is one of the most intriguing young prospects that the Chiefs brought in this off season. By way of Bringham Young University, the 6-foot-2, 208 pound defensive back has made some serious noise in training camp so far.

After being signed as an un-drafted rookie free agent, Sorensen seemed to have an outside shot at making the roster. NFL.com gave the young safety a poor draft grade, saying he has “small hands” and “flat feet.” Still, though he went un-noticed by all 32 teams through all 7 rounds, John Dorsey saw promise in the kid and he’s made his presence felt.

On Monday, August 4th, Sorensen had one of the best days out of any player at camp. Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star reported it all in his daily recap,

"Undrafted rookie safety Daniel Sorensen jumped a Tyler Bray pass intended for receiver Frankie Hammond and came away with the interception. … In 7-on-7, Sorensen struck again by knocking away a Chase Daniel pass intended for tight end Richard Gordon. … Sorensen capped his strong day by picking off another pass, this time from Daniel."

The reason I’m focused on him is because the Chiefs could use his help in the secondary. If he can continue to make plays like that in the game, the once undrafted rookie has a chance to make the team.

Of course, his biggest opportunity to make the roster is through special teams, so, if we hear his named involved in some kick coverage tackles as well, that’s nothing but good news for the young player.

Sorensen is intriguing to me and I look forward to seeing him in game action tonight.
