This rating isn’t any surprise after Sanborn’s outstanding preseason debut, where he finished with 7 total tackles, an interception, a fumble recovery and a pass defended. The Deer Park, In poor health., native went undrafted in May but was in a position to sign with the Chicago Bears as an undrafted free agent.
Sanborn has been turning heads to this point with the Bears, and it is going to hopefully be enough for the talented former Wisconsin Badger to make the ultimate roster.
