PFF analyst on Aidan Hutchinson: 'A better athlete than the Bosa brothers'
Not many players in this year’s draft are as NFL-ready as Michigan defensive end Aidan Hutchinson. There’s a reason the Heisman Trophy finalist is being considered a potential No. 1 overall selection later this month.
But how does Hutchinson compare to other players at his position? Pro Football Focus’ Mike Renner is pretty high on the former Wolverine. And his comment won’t sit well with fans in Columbus.
“Aidan Hutchinson is a better athlete than the Bosa brothers,” Renner said.

Both Joey and Nick Bosa were first-round selections out of Ohio State and have enjoyed plenty of success in their NFL careers thus far. Putting Hutchinson above both is a pretty significant expectation.
Hutchinson is projected to be one of the top selections in this year’s draft after a phenomenal final season at Michigan. He helped lead the Wolverines to a 12-2 record in 2021, a win over Ohio State, a B1G title and a berth in the College Football Playoff.
Hutchinson ended the year as the B1G’s sack leader, tallying 14 for the season. He also piled up 62 tackles, 12 quarterback hurries, 3 pass break-ups and 2 forced fumbles.
Many honors were tossed Hutchinson’s way after an outstanding year. He was named the B1G Defensive Player of the Year, B1G Defensive Lineman of the Year, earned first-team All-B1G and All-American honors and was a Heisman Trophy finalist.
