Daniel Sorensen of BYU boosts draft stock at pro day

Representatives from 20 NFL teams were on hand at BYU’s pro day on Friday, when players worked out indoors on FieldTurf.

Daniel Sorensen, FS (6-foot-1 3/8, 206 pounds) — Sorsensen ran the 40-yard dash in 4.54 and 4.59 seconds. He had a 32 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-2 broad jump. He stood on his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine in the other drills. Sorensen had an impressive workout, displaying good ball skills. He helped his draft status at BYU’s pro day, and now has a chance to be selected early on the third day of the 2014 NFL Draft (fourth round).

Cody Hoffman, WR (6-3 7/8, 218) — Hoffman ran the 40 in 4.70 and 4.67 seconds. He had a 31-inch vertical jump and 9-8 broad jump. He caught the ball well in workouts, dropping just one pass.

Kyle Van Noy, LB (6-3 1/4, 246) — Van Noy stood on all of his numbers from the combine. He moved really well in the linebacker drills. Van Noy is very athletic and showed that he has good hands catching the football. He appears to be a second-day draft pick, probably in the third round.

Eathyn Manumaleuna, DE (6-2 3/8, 290) — Manumaleuna ran the 40 in 5.03 and 5.07 seconds. He had a 27 1/2-inch vertical jump. He looked good in the position drills, moving around well for an athlete of his size.

Spencer Hadley, LB (6-0 7/8, 228) — Hadley ran the 40 in 4.73 and 4.69 seconds. He had a 32-inch vertical and 9-1 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.16 seconds and the three-cone in 6.85 seconds. Hadley has moved up possibly as a seventh-round draft pick or a priority free-agent pickup following the draft.

Devin Unga, LB — Unga was at the combine. He suffered a knee injury in BYU’s loss to Washington in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl. He has not been able to work out for teams at the combine or BYU’s pro day, and it’s doubtful he will be able to do so this spring.
