Casserly picks 49ers’ Nick Bosa as his one player to build a franchise around

May 26, 2020 at 1:49 PM--

Typically, you might select a young and talented quarterback like Super Bowl champion Patrick Mahomes as the one player you would choose to build around if you are starting an NFL franchise. The Super Bowl LIV MVP was Bucky Brooks' selection when asked that very question on NFL Network.

Charley Casserly, however, went in an entirely different direction, selecting the San Francisco 49ers' second-year pass rusher, Nick Bosa.

Which player are you choosing? 🤔

FYI: David Carr went with the Seattle Seahawks' 31-year-old quarterback, Russell Wilson, rather than going with one of the league's younger stars.

While a very strong case can be made for Mahomes, it's tough to deny the impact Bosa had on the defensive side of the football in just his first NFL season. The budding star lived up to being the No. 2 overall pick in 2019. He was named the NFL's AP Defensive Rookie of the Year while racking up nine regular-season sacks and four postseason sacks along the way.

"It's going to take you seven years (if you start with a quarterback)," Cassserly, who was the only one not to select a quarterback, told Colleen Wolfe, Brooks, and Carr on NFL Total Access. "Your quarterbacks won't make it."

Carr admits that while he picked Wilson, he believes Casserly's choice of Bosa is a good one.

H/t to Patrick Tulini for the find.

Analyst Charley Casserly joined NFL Network on Friday to discuss what the 49ers need to do to ensure there is no drop-off along the defensive front now that Buckner is in Indianapolis. Casserly calls the loss of the Pro Bowl defender the biggest offseason storyline for the defending NFC champions. "How do you replace him? Well, not with one person," Casserly told Mike Garafolo.

Nick Bosa has the potential to be a force along the San Francisco 49ers defensive line for years to come. The young pass rusher was as good as advertised during his first NFL season, a campaign that earned him NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. The 49ers' all-time sack leader, Bryant Young, loves what he sees in Bosa. Young joined KNBR on Thursday to discuss his impending induction into the 49ers Hall of Fame and offered up a scouting report of the second-year defender. "I think his ceiling is very high, just coming in," Young told Greg Papa and John Lund.
