NFL prospect Nick Bosa claims he’ll keep opinions to himself from here on out
Former Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa has been discussed a possible No. 1 overall pick within the past 48 hours leasing up to tonight’s NFL Draft. However, if the Arizona Cardinals opt to pick Kyler Murray at the top pick, Bosa is the heavy favorite to go No. 2 to San Francisco.
The 49ers have been on Bosa’s radar for a while as a distinct possibility. He recently told ESPN that he has refrained from political tweets because his conservative views run in contrast to the liberal-leaning Bay Area.
However, Twitter has become the least of Bosa’s cohsncerns of late. You know, what with his future changing forever, and all.
“I’m just getting ready for the draft,” Bosa said. “I’m not really worried about Twitter anymore.
“I think the people who know me, know who I am. And I’m going to keep my opinions to myself from now on.”
In his final season with the Buckeyes, Bosa appeared in only three games before sitting out the rest of the season with an injury. In those games, he recorded four sacks.
Bosa said he came out of a pre-draft visit to Santa Clara feeling as if he would fit in perfectly with the 49ers. He said he has enjoyed getting to know general manager John Lynch, vice president of player personnel Adam Peters, coach Kyle Shanahan and defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, and that the system the 49ers run would fit him perfectly.
“It’s my type of scheme,” Bosa said. “I’d put a hand in the dirt and get after it every play, crushing and closing, playing the edge and pass-rushing. It’s definitely my type of scheme.”
