1. Nick Bosa, Defensive End, Ohio State
I already said I don’t find any reason to be a contrarian for the sake of it, and I won’t be doing that here.
Nick Bosa is my top 49ers pick, and of course he is.
Some prospects are perfect fits and Bosa fits what the 49ers need. A consistent and scary rusher who makes getting to the quarterback look easy, Bosa recently quit Ohio State to focus on the draft following a core muscle injury.
It has been a controversial decision to say the least.
While I understand the controversy, I personally don’t see an issue with it. Playing football is what Bosa wants to do, and he’s making a business decision about it.
It’s an unfortunate situation for Ohio State, but it does make sense to think about your future even if my own personal decision would be to play as much as I can for the love of the game.
But then, I don’t have a chance to make more money off the sport than most of us could dream of.
Bosa is a brilliant pass rusher, and he would be the perfect fit for the 49ers.
