Joe Borchard, of
Stanford

Scouts love the 6-foot-4, 195-pound Borchard's athletic ability, though his desire to continue playing football at Stanford affected his performance on the field this spring and could hurt him at draft time. Those in the know don't consider him a true NFL prospect, but he is the favorite to start at quarterback for the Cardinal in the fall and has been coy about his intentions. His tools are unmistakable. His power is impressive--he has hit several tape-measure shots this spring--and he is an outstanding right fielder with obvious arm strength. He has an excellent approach to the game. Of all the region's projected first-rounders, he may have the highest ceiling.
