Nick Bosa played three seasons at Ohio State, though his junior year was cut significantly short following a core injury against TCU in the third game of the 2018 season. He ended that year with 14 tackles, six tackles for loss, four sacks, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery in just over 10 quarters of play.
In his last full season with the Buckeyes, Bosa shined in his sophomore year with 34 tackles, 16 TFL and 8 1/2 sacks while also forcing another fumble. Coming in as a five-star recruit, Bosa’s true freshman campaign saw the end play in all 13 games and finish with 29 tackles, seven TFL and five sacks.
His success at Ohio State led to Bosa becoming a N0. 2 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers. He immediately brought the same level of success at the professional level that he did while with the Buckeyes, ending his rookie season with 47 tackles, 16 TFL, nine sacks, a forced fumble, two fumble recoveries and an interception. He was named Associated Press’ Defensive Rookie of the Year and helped the 49ers make a run to the Super Bowl.
