This may seem far fetched, but there have been a few signs that Din Djarin could possibly be force sensitive. This seems outlandish because nothing has been suggested openly, and because he’s a character with the least knowledge about Jedi and all things that have to do with the force. However, he is beginning to be exposed to things he knew nothing about before, including the force. Here are a few examples of times when Din seemed to show signs of force sensitivity-

When he tamed the blurrg

Right off the bat in Season 1, Chapter 1, Din had to quickly tame a blurrg so he and Kuill could ride it. Din had to do everything to reach the asset which happened to be Grogu. At first he had a lot of trouble with the creature and got thrown off a few times when he tried mounting it. When he just about gave up, Kuill reminded him of his Mandalorian heritage, and that Mandalorians have ridden Mythosaurs. This was enough to convince Din to try again, but this time he approached the blurrg differently, gently patted her head and helped her calm down. He was immediately successful. Now, here’s why this is a bit strange. In Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, in the middle of battle, Anakin uses similar techniques to calm down a Reek and then jumps onto it. One is a Jedi, the other is a Mandalorian, but both manage to calm down an angry creature. Does it make you wonder?

When he flew through Beggar’s Canyon on the N1:

During The Book Of Boba Fett, Din takes his newly acquired ship, the N1 Starfighter, for a test drive for the first time. Not only does he immediately figure out how to fly the thing with no issues whatsoever, but he flies it through Beggar’s Canyon! If you’ve watched Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, you’ll know what Qui Gon Jinn had to say about Pod Racing. One needs to possess Jedi reflexes to pod race, especially through a tricky track that includes Beggar’s Canyon. Din’s N1 is faster than Anakin’s ride during Episode I. How does Din manage to ride a ship for the first time through such a torturous terrain? It’s not the first time Din has displayed quick reflexes. He seems to know who’s behind him in an instant and manages to shoot down enemies before they can even attempt to make a move against him.

He has the darksaber

Din is in possession of the Darksaber, the weapon forged by the first and only Mandalorian Jedi, Tarre Vizsla. Tarre Vizsla is the only known force sensitive Mandalorian, and of course, plenty of people think Grogu is the next. Fair enough, but this show is about Din Djarin, and it wouldn’t make much sense for a baby to rule Mandalore just yet. It is possible that Din will learn how to wield the Darksaber and even receive some training from his Jedi friends such as Ahsoka. Maybe in the process Din might discover that he’s force sensitive and become the first Mandalorian Jedi since Tarre Vizsla. With a child who is force sensitive and has chosen to return to his Mandalorian father, Grogu could be the next in line to rule and wield the Darksaber. Din can train Grogu on how to be a Mandalorian, but maybe Grogu can help his father train in ways of the force!

His extraordinary bond with Grogu

There’s no doubt that they both love each other and it’s a pure love. But there’s something extraordinary there. As soon as Din reached out to Grogu at the end of Chapter 1, and he reached back, it was obvious that they had connected. Grogu had hidden his force abilities for years, and yet here he was in the company of a dangerous bounty hunter whom he protected him from a mudhorn and even attempted to force heal. The trust between them shows that they’re a special father and son pair. Perhaps the force brought them together and they were always meant to find each other. Is it possible that Grogu knows that Din is at least a little force sensitive?

There could be more reasons to back this theory, but until then, we’ll have to watch The Mandalorian Season 3 beginning on March 1st to see if Din shows anymore signs of being the next Tarre Vizsla.
