Most scouting services project Sorensen a third-round pick, but an impressive showing at the combine could enable him to move up. "I'm a big fan, so I couldn't give you an unbiased opinion," Lamb said. "But judging from what the scouts have been conveying to me, he has all the physical tools. It sounds like many of them believe his abilities transfer best to the NFL - for teams with a pocket-passing game." One thing is certain: Sorensen has the attention of those whose livelihood depends on finding NFL-quality players. Three weeks ago, he was invited to play in the NFL Players Association Collegiate Bowl on Jan. 19 in Carson, Calif. - Steve Luhm, The Salt Lake Tribune
