MADISON, Wis. (AP) - One of the most heralded linebackers to come out of Wisconsin is trying to show scouts that he's worth a high pick in the NFL draft.
Chris Borland is one of the now-former Badgers taking part in Pro Day at the school. Scouts from around the league are timing every run and analyzing every move by a Wisconsin prospect.
Borland is the most well-known Badger this year. Known for his leadership and energy, Borland holds the Big Ten record of 15 career forced fumbles.
Borland is 5-foot-11, and some draft analysts have questioned about how his frame will translate in the pros. He's also had a few injuries in college.
But Borland seemed to have a good day during workouts, as did safety Dezmen Southward.
