Chris Borland: Thomas Hammock will be a great running backs coach for the Ravens

Could linebacker Chris Borland reunite with former Wisconsin assistant Thomas Hammock? - Tom Lynn

Borland referenced Hammock's resume as the reason.

All signs point to Thomas Hammock being a great fit as Baltimore's running backs coach.

The former position coach at Wisconsin had a great deal of success coaching the likes of Montee Ball, James White and Melvin Gordon. He also coached Garrett Wolfe when both were at Northern Illinois.

One rising star at the NFL combine had great things to say about Hammock. That would be Wisconsin linebacker Chris Borland, who vouched for the former Badgers assistant.

"He'll be great [for the Ravens running backs]," Borland told reporters, via The Carroll County Times' Matt Zenitz. "He's outstanding. He had a Heisman finalist [Ball], Melvin Gordon, James White. He's an outstanding coach."

Borland also touted Hammock's coaching style in the interview.

"He’s a little bit of a drill sergeant [as a coach]," Borland said. "He gets after guys, and he gets the most out of them. He works them really hard. And at the same time, he’s there for them, so they have great personal relationships and working relationships."

Borland is someone the Ravens are interested in as well. According to The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson, the Ravens met with the inside linebacker at the combine.

Borland is projected to be a second-to-third rounder this May. At the combine, he posted 27 bench press reps at 225 pounds, ran a 4.83 40-yard dash and posted a 4.27 20-yard shuttle time.
