Ohio State defensive end and NFL Draft prospect Nick Bosa sends positive vibes from a top-30 visit with the New York Giants.
This year’s NFL Draft is stacked with elite defensive lineman. From Alabama’s Quinnen Williams to Ohio State’s Nick Bosa, the first-round talent at that position is insurmountable. The latter just happened to meet with the New York Giants this week for a top-30 visit.
Bosa arrived at team facilities in East Rutherford, NJ on Tuesday evening. Afterward, TMZ Sports caught up with him to ask about his meeting with Big Blue.
“It went good,” Bosa quickly said, as he signed autographs for fans nearby.
Bosa then, later on, replied to questions with the response, “What is this, an interview?” He didn’t seem in the mood for questions, which is something he’s going to have to get used to if he wants to be a big star in the pros.
Unfortunately for the Giants, Bosa may land just outside of their reach. He’s slated to be a top-five pick, and the Giants have the No. 6 overall pick in this year’s draft. Unless the Giants trade up for him, it doesn’t seem likely that Bosa will play in a Giants uniform.
Big Blue should definitely look towards the defensive side of the ball in the first round, however. Their pass-rush was tied for 30th in the NFL last season with just 30 sacks.
Bosa racked up 77 total tackles and 17.5 sacks through three seasons for the Buckeyes. He suffered a core muscle injury in the third game of the year against TCU in 2018. He, therefore, decided to sit out the rest of the season and prepare for the NFL Draft.
Bosa very well could go No. 2 to the San Francisco 49ers or even No. 3 to the New York Jets. The Arizona Cardinals, who have the No. 1 overall selection, may look more towards the offensive side of the ball and draft Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray.
At this point though, who knows? The draft still isn’t for another few weeks, so anything could happen.
