49ers Hosting Ohio State DE Nick Bosa For Visit


Ian Rapoport reports that the 49ers are scheduled to host Ohio State DE Nick Bosa on Thursday for a pre-draft visit.

The overall expectation has been that the Cardinals will open the draft by taking Kyler Murray No. 1 overall and the 49ers will follow by selecting Bosa with the No. 2 pick. 

Bosa has already visited the Giants and Cardinals last week and scheduled to meet with the 49ers today followed by the Raiders Thursday into Friday. He’ll finish by meeting with the Buccaneers Sunday into Monday.

All those teams hold top-six picks in April’s draft, but Bosa is not expected to fall past the 49ers with the No. 2 overall selection. 

Bosa, 21, is a consensus top-5 talent in this year’s draft class and arguably the best of a great group of pass rusher prospects.

Last year, Bosa suffered a core muscle injury that has kept him sidelined and he decided it was best to not risk further injury and sat out the remainder of the season. 

During his college career at Ohio State, Bosa recorded 77 tackles, 29 tackles for a loss, 17.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, two pass defenses and a defensive touchdown over the course of three seasons and 29 games.
