49ers selected Wisconsin ILB Chris Borland with the No. 77 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Borland (5-foot-11 1/2, 248) earned 2013 Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and set the conference record for career forced fumbles (15). His 420 tackles rank sixth in Wisconsin history, 50 of which went for a loss. A sure tackler with deceptive burst to the ball carrier, Borland has T-Rex arms (29 1/4") and lacks ideal speed (4.83), but overcomes limitations by just being good at football. Smart (32 Wonderlic score), and exceptionally instinctive, Borland projects as a future starting inside linebacker whose coverage deficiencies may have to be masked by scheme. He will likely rotate early with Michael Wilhoite until NaVorro Bowman gets back to full health. Fri, May 9, 2014 10:17:00 PM
