Nat Borchers is considered one of the league’s most brutally effective center backs in history despite going undrafted in 2003. Incredibly, in 11 seasons in MLS, Borchers has played more than 2,000 minutes in every one.
That includes his key roles in the middle for two different clubs during MLS Cup title runs; once for Real Salt Lake in 2009 and again for the Timbers in 2015. Borchers was also a devastating weapon on dead balls and corners; his 15 career goals is one of the best totals for a defender in MLS history.
