Nick Bosa “shooting for” No. 1 overall pick

The extended Bosa family has a lot of experience with the first round of the NFL Draft over the years as John Bosa, his brother-in-low Eric Kumerow and his son Joey Bosa have all been taken off the board on the first day.

Joey Bosa was the highest pick of the three as he went third overall to the Chargers in 2016, but his younger brother and fellow defensive end could swipe that crown from him in April. Nick Bosa is expected to be one of the first names off the board and there are plenty who feel he’ll be the first overall pick. While others have downplayed the significance of being the top pick, John Bosa said that’s the goal.

“He’s always felt like that’s something he’s shooting for,” John said, via Albert Breer of SI.com. “That’s what you hope for, that’s what Joey was hoping for, and that’s what Nick will hope for. These kids have been through it, and understand it enough to know that anything can happen on draft day.”

The elder Bosa also confirmed that his son plans to participate in all drills after missing most of the 2018 season following core muscle surgery. He said his son is “in perfect shape” and may be in even better condition than he was before the injury because he’s been focused on training for months.

All of that should help push Bosa toward fulfilling his goal, but there’s a long time to go before the Cardinals — assuming they don’t trade the pick — will officially be on the clock.

  1. Is he as injury-prone as his brother? Does he disappear for long stretches during the season?

  2. Please let Nick Bosa, Kyler Murray, Drew Lock and few other overrated fools go very high in the first round.

    Let the actual elite prospects like Josh Allen, T.J. Hockenson, and Montez Sweat fall!

  3. His best destination is #2 with the 49ers. How fortunate will it be for him to go from the best college football program in the land to the historically best franchise in the history of sports.

    The 49ers are owned by the Bay Area’s favorite Italian Ohio family. The 49ers franchise QB is Italian, the best player in the history of the franchise is Italian, how perfect will it be for our defense to be anchored by an Italian age the Leo position.

    Arizona, pick Kyler Murray and give your Head coach his ideal QB, and let Bosa be great and fall to the 49ers.

    That’s a lot of writing to not even mention what position he plays.

    –It is there in the second paragraph–
    “Joey Bosa was the highest pick of the three as he went third overall to the Chargers in 2016, but his younger brother and fellow defensive end…”.

    The younger brother referred to is Nick. We thus can know that Nick is a defensive end.

  5. I’m hoping he doesn’t go in the first 2 picks. It would be just like the Jets to attempt the same ‘offset language’ scam that the Chargers tried on his brother.
