2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Chris Borland, ILB, Wisconsin

Borland is an undersized inside linebacker prospect who outplays all of his measurements. One of Wisconsin's all-time leaders in forced fumbles and tackles, he could have a long-term, productive career if he can overcome some of his physical limitations.

At just 5'11", he is unlikely to be considered the ideal sized linebacker in any scheme. What makes him unique is his physical style of play and surprising instincts. Moves through traffic well to navigate his way to the ball-carrier. Fills the hole fast. Incredible motor. Above-average lateral quickness. Good zone awareness and aggressive in downhill pursuit.

Short arm and short-bodied. A liability in coverage. Can't drop back fast enough in coverage. Average core strength. Can't match up against tight ends due to his lacking height. Must contribute on special teams to keep roster spot.

Borland projects as a late second to early third round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft.
