Chris Borland

School: Wisconsin
Position: ILB
Positive: Three-year starter named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year in 2013. Career totals of 143 tackles, 19 tackles for loss, and five forced fumbles came during his sophomore season of 2011. Intense linebacker with size limitations. Nasty, plays all out, and sacrifices his body to make plays. Explodes up the field in run defense then squares into ball carriers. Instinctive, shows good recognition in coverage, and battles tight ends to defend the throw. Shows the ability to run downfield with opponents and displays a feel in coverage. A fiery defender who leads by example.
Negative: Easily taken from the action by blocks. Has an injury history, which includes hamstring issues as a junior and a shoulder injury which limited him to just two games in 2010.
Analysis: Borland is a smart and intense linebacker who leads by example. His playing skills are second-round value, but size and an injury history could push Borland into the draft's last day. In the proper system Borland will have a long and productive career in the NFL if he stays healthy.
