49ers se­lect Ohio State DE Bosa with No. 2 pick

The Tribune (SLO) - - News | Classifieds -

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.
