Joining Borland on the Lombardi list was UW senior offensive lineman Ryan Groy.  Groy was earlier a member of the Outland Trophy Watch list.

Aaron Gibson (1998), Wendel Bryant (2000 and 2001), Erasmus James (2004) and Joe Thomas (2005 and 2006) have all been semifinalists for the award, with Gibson and James being named finalists.  No Badger has ever won the Lombardi Award.
