ESPN recently asked a panel of its writers and analysts to pick one NFL rookie who is a lock to be a superstar in the league. One writer, Kevin Seifert, selected San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa.

The 49ers made Bosa the No. 2 overall pick in April. The former Buckeye was widely considered to be the best defensive player among this year's draft class with many analysts believing him to be the best overall rookie, period. Nick Bosa is the younger brother of Joey Bosa, the defensive star of the Los Angeles Chargers.

Seifert wrote the following about Nick Bosa:

"Pre-draft discussion about his political leanings masked what is largely a perfect football résumé. His ability to change a game via the pass rush or run defense will make him a star in a big market."

Bosa, one of two remaining unsigned 49ers draft picks, missed most of the team's organized team activities and its June minicamp due to a low-grade hamstring strain. Assuming he is signed, Bosa is expected to be ready for the start of San Francisco's training camp on July 26.

The favorite among the ESPN experts was the Arizona Cardinals' rookie quarterback, Kyler Murray. Three writers from the six-person panel selected the No. 1 overall pick as their lock to become an NFL superstar.

ESPN fantasy writer, Mike Clay, wrote the following about the Cardinals rookie:

"Yes, Murray is undersized, but his absurd combination of efficiency and production as both a passer and rusher makes him a perfect fit for the modern NFL."

The 49ers will face Murray twice each year during the regular season.

Quinnen Williams, the rookie defensive tackle for the New York Jets, received two votes.
