Wisconsin linebacker Chris Borland won’t let size hold him back

By all accounts, Wisconsin's Chris Borland is aggressive, instinctive and productive. He is also the 2013 Big 10 Defensive Player of the Year after a senior season in which he racked up 112 tackles and four sacks. But at 5 feet 11, Borland also happens to be shorter than NFL scouts prefer, though it puts him in a class with some of the best middle linebackers to ever play the game.
