Nick Bosa calls rookie Javon Kinlaw ‘one of the biggest humans’ he’s ever seen

Aug 6, 2020 at 12:37 PM--


One thing that teammates said last offseason about defensive end Nick Bosa was that he didn't seem like a rookie out on the practice field. He entered the NFL very polished, which was evident from his impressive rookie campaign.

Bosa ended up reaching opposing quarterbacks nine times during the regular season and added four more sacks during the postseason, earning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year honors.

When Bosa looks at this year's top 49ers draft pick, defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, just like him before, it's sometimes easy to forget that he is entering his first NFL season.

"Javon is a really good kid," Bosa told reporters on Thursday during a video conference call. "He's really hard-working in the meeting room. He knows all his stuff really well. He doesn't seem like a rookie out there. We've only been out there for a couple of walk-throughs so far, and he knows his stuff, and he doesn't look like a rookie.

"Like I said before in an interview, he's one of the biggest humans I've ever seen in person, and that says a lot when you've had Arik (Armstead) and [DeForest Buckner] on your team. So, I'm just excited for him to have this opportunity, and I think he's going to kill it."

With the addition of Kinlaw and the recent signing if Dion Jordan, San Francisco now has six former first-round picks on its defensive line, including Bosa, Dee Ford, Arik Armstead, and Solomon Thomas.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Monday, the day after the team's 24-20 Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Here is everything he had to say. Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. On WR Deebo Samuel, what happened last week that changed your thinking from him being close to him being on IR and did he have a setback? "Yeah, we didn't think it was a setback because he was just real sore after running one day, but the soreness never got better. It just got worse and worse after one specific day. Usually after one day when it was sore, we thought it was just because he worked it hard, but when that got worse each day and not better, we knew it ended up being a
