Nick Bosa to visit teams with top six picks in NFL draft
Nick Bosa, Ohio State’s former star pass rusher, a projected top pick in this year’s draft and the younger brother of Joey Bosa of the Los Angles Chargers is set to visit all the teams with the top six picks in this year’s draft. Bosa has already met with the New York Giants, who hold the sixth pick, the San Fransisco 49ers, who have the second pick, and is scheduled to meet with the Arizona Cardinals, who have the first overall pick, today.
According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, Bosa will meet the New York Jets who pick third, the Oakland Raiders who pick fourth, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers who pick fifth. Bosa began the year as the projected first overall pick, but Cardinal’s new head coach, Kliff Kingbury, is reportedly enamored with quarterback Kyler Murray, even though the franchise took quarterback Josh Rosen with the tenth pick just last year.
Even if Bosa doesn’t go first overall, he isn’t expected to last past the second or third selection, making some of these trips precautionary. In September, it was reported that Bosa underwent core muscle surgery, ruling him out indefinitely. Then on October 16, Bosa announced that he was withdrawing from Ohio State for the rest of the season after playing just three games in his third season.
Bosa is looking to become the third member of his family to play in the NFL, and the second top three pick. His brother Joey was selected with the third pick by the Chargers in the 2016 draft, and their father, John Bosa, was taken by the Miami Dolphins with the 16th pick in the 1987 draft.
In three years at Ohio State, Bosa played in 29 games. He tallied 77 total tackles and 17.5 sacks. He also returned a fumble for a touchdown in their matchup with Oregon State in last season.
