Anyone who has followed Wisconsin football knows about Chris Borland. This guy, though “small” for NFL linebackers, is the type of player who is all over the field. He has a nose for the ball and doesn’t shrink in effort and desire when he plays.
Here’s what walterfootball.com has to say about Borland:
Borland is a tough, physical defender who has a knack for jarring the ball loose. His best fit in the NFL could be on the inside of a 3-4 defense. He may not have the speed and athleticism to play in a 4-3. Borland is short and not a fluid athlete for pass coverage in the NFL, so he could easily end up being a two-down linebacker and special teams contributor.
He would be a popular choice for those of us who have followed his collegiate career. Taking his next step with the Packers would be a great story to follow.
