The Niners are a team that needs a lot of help. What they don’t need is a quarterback, having signed Jimmy Garoppolo to a long-term deal before last year to run head coach Kyle Shanahan’s offense. The Niners defense gave up the fifth-worst amount of points in 2018, averaging 27.2 points against them.
The offense lost Garoppolo early last year, starting running back, Jerrick McKinnon, and had various other injuries that stymied the entire 2018 campaign. In short, San Fran’ can take its top-rated player because they have needs on both sides of the ball. Nick Bosa is a second-generation NFL player, played at a high level in the Big Ten Conference for former Buckeyes coaches Urban Meyer and Greg Schiano.
Bosa also has his older sibling, Joey, in the NFL playing for the Los Angeles Chargers. The younger Bosa is productive, a good athlete, and has a pro pedigree. His season ended early after an abdominal tear made him leave school to get treatment so that he could be ready for the NFL.
Bosa is 6-4, 266 pounds, ran a 4.79 forty-yard dash, and did well in agility drills which show that he can be flexible in his pass rush but also sudden. Bottom Line, San Francisco gets the defacto first pick and grabs what many pundits believe is the best prospect at any position.
