Nick Bosa sets Pro Football Focus rookie record, plus the highest-graded 49ers vs. Rams

Dec 23, 2019 at 10:40 AM--

That Nick Bosa guy is pretty good. That much has been made clear this season. The No. 2 overall pick by the San Francisco 49ers has made an impact on a much-improved defense that ranked among the league's worst last season.

Bosa has 41 tackles, nine sacks, two passes defensed, an interception, and a forced fumble through 15 games this season. But it is another statistic that puts him in the Pro Football Focus record books.

With five quarterback pressures on Saturday against the Los Angeles Rams, Bosa now has 69 for the season. That total is the most recorded by a rookie in the Pro Football Focus era, and Bosa has one more game to play this season.

Bosa is the second-highest graded player (87.9) on the 49ers defense this season, behind only defensive lineman Arik Armstead (89.7). Despite his impressive rookie season, Bosa was not among the five highest-graded players on Saturday night against the Rams.

Below are the five highest-graded 49ers players on offense against the Rams. The players with fewer than 10 snaps are noted.

49ers' Nick Bosa staying with brother, Joey, during ACL rehab

The outlook for the 2020 San Francisco 49ers changed dramatically when second-year defensive end Nick Bosa went down with a torn ACL during Week 2 against the New York Jets. That's how good Bosa is. He is a game-changer on the edge of the once-formidable Niners defensive line that has also lost Solomon Thomas for the year to a torn ACL, and veteran Dee Ford is out indefinitely with a back injury. Joey Bosa of the Los Angeles Chargers told reporters on Wednesday that his younger brother, Nick, is staying with him and his parents during his rehab. "It's nice having them around," Joey Bosa said. "They're keeping the place [tidy] for me and food constantly running. I can't
