The Ohio State Buckeyes are loaded with talent entering the 2018 season, and one of their most talented players is DE Nick Bosa.
Bosa is a near-lock to be a first-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, and could even go No. 1 overall if all goes well this fall.
On Monday, seven ESPN experts voted on who they think the best pass rusher in the nation will be, and Bosa led the way, garnering three of the seven votes. ESPN’s Ed Aschoff, Tom VanHaaren and Jake Trotter all chose Bosa, with Clemson’s Clelin Ferrell landing two of the other votes.
Here’s what Aschoff had to say about Bosa’s elite abilities, comparing him to his older brother, Joey:
Everyone who doesn’t pick Nick Bosa is just trying to be cute. He’s already better than his brother, and he might challenge Ed Oliver for the top pick in next year’s NFL draft. He’s an insane mixture of athleticism and strength, and it’s really not a question of if he’ll get to the quarterback, but when. You’re standing on the tracks, and he’s the train coming through.
Bosa finished the 2017 season with 34 tackles (16 for a loss) and 8.5 sacks. He could become even better this fall.
