RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

There was no outlook written for Chris Borland.

2014

Selected in the third round (77th overall) of the 2014 draft, Borland joins a 49ers team that has tons of talent at linebacker, although he may get an opportunity to contribute early in the season. With NaVorro Bowman expected to start the season on the PUP list due to a torn ACL suffered in last year's NFC championship game, Borland could step in to hold down the fort, putting him in a solid position to be an early IDP contributor should he win the starting job. He fell in the draft due to a prior shoulder injury, and he doesn't have great speed or length, but he still managed to eclipse the 100-tackle mark in his last three seasons at Wisconsin, adding 10.5 sacks in that span. As of right now, he is listed as the primary backup to both Patrick Willis and Michael Wilhoite at middle linebacker.
