To say Borland is the next Zach Thomas is disrespectful to Mr. Thomas.
7× Pro Bowl (1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003,2005, 2006)
5× First-team All-Pro (1998, 1999, 2002, 2003,2006)
2× Second-team All-Pro (2001, 2005)
2× NFL Alumni Linebacker of the Year (1998, 2006)
It's true, they're both short white guys with high motors, but it remains to be seen how Borland's game translates in the NFL. He's supposed to have good instincts but saying he's the next Zach Thomas or Kiko Alonso is outrageous. He's Chris Borland and we'll see how good he is as a pro.
