Jack Sanborn fails to impress during LB workouts at NFL Combine
Jack Sanborn was a productive member of Wisconsin’s defense during his time in Madison. Unfortunately, he did not draw high marks during his NFL Combine workouts in Indianapolis.
Over the 2019-20 seasons, Sanborn led the Badgers in tackles. In 2019, Sanborn posted 80 tackles, 9 TFL, 5.5 sacks and 3 interceptions.
During the 2021 season, Sanborn finished second on the team with 89 tackles, trailing only Leo Chenal. He also finished second with 16 TFL and had 5 sacks.
Unfortunately for Sanborn, The Draft Network was not blown away by his work at the Combine. Here’s what that publication had to say about his workouts:
I expected more out of Jack Sanborn, who was gaining steam as a potential early-day-three pick. He failed to showcase anything above average for athletic traits in testing and looked stiff and uncomfortable at times in coverage drills. I’ll have an eye on him at Wisconsin’s Pro Day (March 9).
It will be interesting to see what impact Sanborn’s Combine performance has on his draft stock. For now, he will have to trust his production and onfield tape is enough to showcase what he brings to the table.
