Ohio State DE Nick Bosa visiting with 49ers on Wednesday and Thursday, per report

Apr 8, 2019 at 9:13 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers are holding a pre-draft visit with former Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa this week. He will have dinner with the 49ers on Wednesday night and meet with team decision-makers on Thursday, according to Albert Breer of The MMQB.

Breer was the first to report that Bosa's visit to the 49ers' Santa Clara-based facilities would take place this week. He will also visit the Oakland Raiders during his trip to the Bay Area, having dinner with them on Thursday night after his time in Santa Clara and touring their facility on Friday.

Bosa will also meet with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday and Monday.

Bosa is the widely-popular pick among mock drafts for the 49ers, who own the No. 2 overall pick. One NFL scout with connections to head coach Kyle Shanahan recently indicated to Matt Miller of Bleacher Report that any other selection would be a shock. The Arizona Cardinals are still expected to use the top pick on former Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray. Of course, nothing becomes official until April 25.

"Don't overthink this s--t. If (Nick) Bosa is on the board, the Niners are picking Bosa," the scout told Miller.

NFL teams are permitted to host up to 30 players for official pre-draft visits at their facilities. Unlike local prospects, those players are not allowed to work out for the team during the visit and typically meet with team decision-makers and receive tours of the facilities, which in the case of the 49ers, includes neighboring Levi's Stadium.

Bosa finished his 2018 season with the Buckeyes with four sacks in three games after racking up 13.5 during his previous two years. He missed the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery due to a core muscle injury sustained during Ohio State's third game and announced on October 16, 2018, that he was leaving school to focus on preparing for the draft.

The 49ers are becoming very familiar with Bosa. General manager John Lynch had an opportunity to speak with the draft prospect in January during the week leading to the Rose Bowl. Bosa was training in the Pasadena area and observed an Ohio State practice that Lynch happened to attend.

"We had a fortuitous deal. We came down to scout Ohio State," Lynch said in February. "They've got a ton of players. It happened to be the day, him not playing and being around his team, he showed up at practice that day."

San Francisco also interviewed Bosa at the NFL Scouting Combine in February, and Lynch and VP of player personnel Adam Peters met with him at Ohio State's pro day in March.

Nick Bosa is the younger brother of Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa. He registered 77 combined tackles with 17.5 sacks in just over two seasons with the Buckeyes.

"I would be lucky to get picked by [the 49ers]," Bosa said during a KNBR interview in February. "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."

The next inductee into the Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. San Francisco 49ers Hall of Fame sat down with Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area for the latest episode of the 49ers Insider Podcast. Young wore No. 97 during his time with San Francisco, the only team he played for during his 14-year career. Another player wears that number now — defensive end Nick Bosa. What does Young, who spent some time coaching through the college and pro ranks after his NFL career, think about the talented second-year player? "Nick does a good job just in terms of one, being a very knowledgable player," Young told Maiocco. "He sees the game. You can tell he's been surrounded by good coaching. And then just his family history. His dad played, his brother played, and so

The San Francisco 49ers are in no danger of losing last season's breakout running back, Raheem Mostert, anytime soon. He doesn't become an unrestricted free agent until 2022.

The 49ers have had discussions about contract extensions for both players, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic.

There is no doubt that, based on his contributions toward the end of last season and in the playoffs, Raheem Mostert is grossly underpaid. That's why the San Francisco 49ers running back requested a pay raise this offseason, according to Josina Anderson. Mostert accepted a multi-year deal last offseason. Of course, that was long before his 29-carry, 220-yard, and four-touchdown performance against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game. The running back would like to rework the deal, per the report, as an acknowledgment of his increased
