San Diego Chargers select Brad Sorensen in 7th round

With the 221st pick overall, Chargers select Southern Utah QB Brad Sorensen.


Brad Sorensen, developmental quarterback, is the Chargers' final draft choice of 2013, and it is a peculiar one. Sorensen is not a great athlete and has not been tested against anything approaching high-level competition during his collegiate career.

His path to the NFL was a somewhat unusual one. He played one year of junior college ball after his two-year Mormon mission in Spain, then walked on at BYU and redshirted before transferring to Southern Utah University due to playing time concerns.

At 6'4", 230 lbs, he has the size you'd expect of an NFL passer and his arm strength is above average. He reportedly looks the part of an professional in the pocket as well having led a fairly wide-open SUU passing attack. He's an older prospect than most coming out of college and he lacks athleticism.

It will be interesting to see if Sorensen can make the actual 53-man roster backing up Charlie Whitehurst and Philip Rivers, or if Telesco expects to be able to stash him on the practice squad.
