His real name is Ha'Sean. His last name is just as bad. There has to be a Monica Lewinski joke in there somewhere.

His grandmother named him that as a kid because he was always laughing and grinning. His name is Ha'Sean.

Another square peg into that round hole!

I am still convinced we need to find a MLB. We've tried FA retreads and rookies and failed (apparently) to find one. So I have been looking at this draft almost exclusively on the need for a MLB and improving ss/fs/cb . This post is exclusively about the MLB's
in this draft or players I believe could play that position. Since most of us can only judge a players ability by watchjng complete college games(if you're lucky) or high light videos and looking at the numbers they post in the various tests devised by the NFL . This post is about the comparison numbers only, I'm including the same numbers posted by Brian Urlacher prior to the 99 draft for reference. Bare in mind he was a super athlete and played pr/kr/wr/fs and olb and was a consensus All American.

The format is as follows; last name, hgt. wgt. bench reps, 40yd time, 20yd time, 10 yd time, broad jump.

Urlacher 6-4 255, 27, 4.59, 2.67. 1.62, 10-2

this drafts ILB's
Mosley 6-2, 235, N/A, 4.63, 2.70, 1.56, 9-10
Borland 5-11 245, 27, 4.81, 2.69, 1.59, 9-6
Skov 6-3 245, (couldn't find any numbers for him on the sites I checked)
Bullough 6-4 245, 30, 4.76, 272, 1.66, 9-4

OLB's who could play in the middle IMO.
Shazier 6-1 235, 25, 4.38, 2.58, 1.56, 10-10
Van Noy 6-4 242, 21, 4.71, n/a, n/a, 9-4
Tripp 6-3 235, 22, 4.67, n/a, n/a, 10-0
Reilly 6-5 245, 26, 4.66, 2.74, 1.66, 9-9 (Trevor) All pac 12 as an olb at Utah.
This guy is really interesting nominally he is an olb/de being projected to go in the 3rd round.

Mosley, and Shazier will be gone before our first pick.
Borland and Van Noy will go in the middle of the second round IMO so if we want one of them we would have to use our 1st to do it.

By the way while I was researching this I came across some supposedly leaked Wonderlic scores. Borland hung up a 32.

Borelands numbers are not far off from urlacher. 2/10ths of a second slower in the 40.

I don't care the popular consensus. Guy is legit and will be a stud in the league. Not just a two down player.

It's not just his numbers, it's his film. He's not fluid transitioning into coverage and is stiff in the hips. He can play dropping into a zone, but he's not running down the seam with a TE. And would have issues chasing a WR over the middle or a RB down the sideline on a wheel route.

Borland is better suited for a 3-4 scheme, please no.

A player I think is being undervalued in this draft is Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia....same with David Fales, QB, San Jose State.

2 blinks of an eye.

But a guy like boreland diagnoses the play so fast he makes up for it. He is going to be a legit player in the league for sure.

Borland has had two surgeries on the same labrum. There is a rumor that the screw inserted into his shoulder (causing him to miss the 2011 season) has migrated close to the joint. Some teams have taken him completely off their draft board.

*according to footballguys.com podcast

So ya, Borland could've helped us this year, as he's playing well for Vic Fangio.


Dude can play.
