The San Francisco 49ers are having dinner with defensive end Nick Bosa tonight following Ohio State's Pro day, according to Albert Breer of The MMQB.


Bosa met with the 49ers at the NFL Scouting Combine and met with general manager John Lynch in January when Ohio State was in Southern California, where Bosa is training, for the Rose Bowl.

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 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.

Bosa registered 77 combined tackles with 17.5 sacks in just over two seasons with the Buckeyes.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-4 and 266-pound Bosa had a 40-time of 4.79 seconds, a vertical jump of 33.5 inches, a broad jump of 116 inches, completed the three-cone drill in 7.1 seconds, 29 reps in the bench press, and a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.14 seconds. Other measurables for Bosa include an arm length of 33 inches and hands that measure 10 3/4 inches.

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."

Kyle Crabbs of The Draft Network wrote the following about Bosa within his scouting report:

"EDGE Nick Bosa projects as a high impact 3-point stance rusher from day one. Offering versatility to play in nearly any scheme/front, Bosa is a universal blue chip prospect who can be moved along the line of scrimmage at the leisure of down/distance and at the will of his coaches. An ideal role would feature interior reps for penetration skills and maximize mismatch opportunities."
