Nick Bosa Scouting Report    

What I Like:

Balance and Bend

On this play, Nick Bosa shows an excellent ability to bend down and get past the tackle, while also showing a tremendous balance ability to remain upright and go after the quarterback.

 

What I Dislike:

Physicality

While breaking down game film, I came across the Big Ten Championship Game against Wisconsin. In the game, and specifically on this play, Nick Bosa was handled extremely well by the Badgers offensive line.

 

Fighting Through Double-Teams

Nick Bosa possesses stellar strength to push through the trenches and attack the ball carrier. Below, he shows excellent ability to find the ball and drive through his blockers to assist on the tackle.

 

Overall Breakdown

Nick Bosa displays tremendous abilities as an edge rusher. Shows excellent ability to bend and maintain balance to elude tackles and engage the quarterback. Consistently fought through double-teams to still disrupt the pocket. Wisconsin was able to neutralize Bosa in the Big Ten Championship Game, which could translate to NFL teams looking to do the same at the next level.

 

Draft Round Prediction

Top-Five Pick

I had Nick Bosa coming off the board first overall to the Cardinals. It’s possible that a prospect like Quinnen Williams or Josh Allen have a monster performance at the NFL Combine and surpass Bosa, although I don’t believe that Nick Bosa will slide past the fifth pick.
