The San Francisco 49ers will meet with Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa on Saturday night at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, according to a report from The Athletic. Each NFL team is allowed to conduct 60 player interviews in 15-minute intervals in Indianapolis.


Bosa will meet with each of the NFL teams with top-eight picks in the draft, according to NBC Sports Bay Area.


Bosa is the younger brother of Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa. He finished the 2018 season with four sacks through three games after recording 13.5 sacks in his previous two years.

Bosa registered 77 combined tackles with 17.5 sacks in just over two seasons with the Buckeyes. He underwent surgery due to a core muscle injury sustained during the Buckeye's third game of last season and announced on October 16, 2018, that he was leaving school to focus on preparing for the draft.


"I would be lucky to get picked by [the 49ers]," Bosa said in February during a KNBR interview. "The roster, for a team that's picking No. 2, is a really stacked roster. They had the injury at quarterback that obviously allowed them to get this high in the draft so I think it would be cool, definitely, to go play for a team that is closer than most people think to being a contender."

Lance Zierlein of NFL.com, who compares Bosa to Michael Bennett, wrote the following about Bosa within his scouting report:

"High-motor defensive end prospect possessing NFL play strength on a well-muscled, compact frame. Bosa uses forward lean, smart hands and impressive upper-body power to pry open edges against the run and pass. He can defeat single blocks and fits as an end in both 4-3 and 3-4 fronts with the ability to reduce inside as a rusher. His lack of fluidity in space could prevent him from becoming an elite rusher, but he understands how to play and should become an early starter and future Pro Bowler."

Joe Marino of The Draft Network wrote the following the following about Bosa within his scouting report:

"Bosa projects most favorably to playing defensive end in an even front with upside to immediately become a high impact playmaker. He offers a polished pass rushing skill set, exceptional processing skills, outstanding play strength and the athleticism to be a game-changing edge defender in the NFL. By year three, Bosa has the upside to be one of the NFL's most valuable and dynamic defensive playmakers."
