49ers scheduled to meet with Ohio State DE Nick Bosa at the NFL Scouting Combine

Mar 2, 2019 at 11:14 AM--


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."

49ers-Bears: How Kyle Shanahan, Trey Lance, Nick Bosa reacted to disappointing Week 1 loss

By David Bonilla
Sep 11

Well, that was disappointing to watch. Not just for fans but the San Francisco 49ers. Head coach Kyle Shanahan watched as his team surrendered a 10-point lead and suffered a second-half collapse to the Chicago Bears. The matchup many felt would be a gimme for the Niners in their opener ended in a 19-10 defeat and an 0-1 start to the season. What was Shanahan's message to his team after the game? The coach didn't see anything wrong with his players' efforts. There were just too many costly mistakes on which Chicago ended up capitalizing. "First thing, it starts out with is the intent and how hard everybody goes," Shanahan said. "I never felt anything wrong with that throughout the game, but you're not going to win a lot of games when you miss those opportunities



Nick Bosa tasked with addressing 49ers before each game

Nick Bosa is a first-year team captain. He is the only newcomer to the group of six San Francisco 49ers captains, including defensive lineman Arik Armstead, tight end George Kittle, safety Jimmie Ward, linebacker Fred Warner, and tackle Trent Williams. His teammates so respect the 24-year-old pass rusher that head coach Kyle Shanahan tasked him with the honor of giving a speech to the team the day before each game last season. That tradition carried over into 2022. "I just give the Saturday speeches after walk-throughs," Bosa said on Friday. "I was doing that all last year too." Bosa isn't very proud of his speeches from last season, but the experience was invaluable because he



How badly are the 49ers missing Mike McDaniel? Are the Super Bowl wheels falling off? 49ers Webzone Mailbag

49ers Twitter and Facebook are melting down. All it took was one ugly loss, and many fans have already turned on the coaching staff, and the young quarterback, while declaring the season over. It's funny and annoying altogether. It's also way too early for any of that. This week, considering the frustration that many fans were experiencing, we decided to not only answer questions in this mailbag, but also give fans the chance to vent. Several did. But we only have room for so many. So here we go. Let's get to the mailbag. Does it seem that when the defense crumbles it's because of a needless penalty by Greenlaw? How many more are acceptable before a change is made? - Niner Jim The defense was dominant in the first half. And for the



49ers Notebook: Ryans, Foerster evaluate rookies; What happened on the Pettis play?; Former Seahawk K.J. Wright slams 49ers QB situation

There's still much to discuss (and much to move on from) when it comes to the 49ers' Week 1 loss to the Chicago Bears, and on Thursday it was time for defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans and offensive line coach/run game coordinator Chris Foerster to offer their perspectives on what went right and what went wrong last Sunday. Ryans gave some thoughts on the performance of a couple key defensive linemen, while each coach gave their evaluation of the rookies on their side of the ball that got significant playing time. Ryans also talked about the touchdown pass from Bears quarterback Justin Fields to former 49ers receiver Dante Pettis and what his players did incorrectly on the play. There were also a couple noteworthy quotes to come from the radio airwaves, in
