49ers select Ohio State DE Bosa with No. 2 pick
For the fourth time in five years, the San Francisco 49ers took a defensive lineman with their first-round pick Thursday night, all in hopes of improving a pass rush that has been mediocre for several seasons. This time it’s Ohio State’s Nick Bosa, who hasn’t played since suffering a seasonending injury last September.
Bosa had 171⁄2 sacks and 29 tackles for loss in 30 games with the Buckeyes. He played in only three games as a junior before suffering a core muscle injury that required surgery.
San Francisco was 23rd in the NFL with 36 sacks in 2018.
