NFL Draft Scout's Rob Rang projects the Giants to take Ohio State junior DE Nick Bosa with the first pick in his midseason mock draft.
Rang projects the first four picks to be defensive lineman, with Alabama's Quinnen Williams going second to the Raiders, Houston's Ed Oliver going third to the 49ers, and Clemson's Clelin Ferrell going fourth to the Bills. As for Bosa going first, it wouldn't be a surprise at all, and it appears to just come down to which team gets that first pick. Nov 12 - 5:53 PM

The Draft Network's Kyle Crabbs lists the 49ers as the team most likely to land Ohio State junior DE Nick Bosa.

Bosa also gives the Buccaneers, Cardinals, Colts and Raiders as teams that have a chance to land the star edge-rusher, who announced he was leaving Ohio State and entering the 2019 draft. The 49ers are a disappointing 1-5 to start the year, and as Crabbs notes, they have a brutal upcoming schedule left. San Francisco won't need to draft a quarterback high with Jimmy Garoppolo coming back from his ACL injury, so if they do get the top pick, Bosa would make an awful lot of sense.

Ohio State junior DE Nick Bosa (abdomen) will not return to the Buckeyes this season and will instead begin training for the 2019 NFL draft once he's cleared to do so.

Bosa's season ended before it began when he suffered a core muscle injury in the victory over TCU on September 15. What followed was surgery. We were told he was going to be re-evaluated in November -- Bosa will still meet with Dr. William Meyers for a follow-up next month -- but his return was never a guarantee. The preseason All-American accumulated four sacks, scored a TD on a fumble recovery, and forced a fumble that was ultimately returned for a TD by a teammate before his injury. The Athletic's Dane Brugler and Bleacher Report's Matt Miller have already tweeted that Bosa is and will remain the No. 1 overall player on their respective draft boards. Assuming his health problems are behind him, Bosa is pretty close to being a top-five lock come April. The top-three picks in last year's draft each signed contracts worth more than $30 million. Bosa is making the correct decision here in investing in his future, difficult as it may be to walk away from a title chase.

A video posted to social media on Monday showed Ohio State junior DE Nick Bosa (abdomen) working out on agility ladder.

Bosa (6'4/243) underwent abdomen surgery last week for an injury sustained against TCU in mid-September. He will be reevaluated in November, and there's no guarantee he returns before the close of the regular season, but it's nice to see that he's already on the rehab trail. We'll continue to track the stud end's progress over the next month.

Ohio State junior DE Nick Bosa (abdomen) will not play until November according to his father, John Bosa.

Bosa was ruled out for Penn State on Saturday with the injury, but it sounds like we're not going to be seeing the All-American back on the field for several more weeks. "Nick had major surgery," Bosa told Ari Wasserman of The Athletic. "Now, he had surgery with the best surgeon for the core on the planet (Dr. William C. Meyers in Philadelphia) and it’s 100 percent fixable, which is the beauty of it, but he’s not even getting reevaluated until November." Ohio State's loaded with quality players on the defensive line, but this is a substantial loss for the Buckeyes, as he's one of the very best players in college football. We'll also have to see how this changes his draft stock, with many believing the defender is the favorite to be the first pick in next year's draft.

Ohio State junior DE Nick Bosa (abdomen) won't play in Saturday's game at Penn State.

HC Urban Meyer ruled Bosa out on Monday. Bosa, the Big Ten's reigning defensive lineman of the year and an All-American, will miss a few more weeks. He was injured against TCU the Saturday before last and subsequently underwent surgery. Bosa is a top-five overall NFL prospect and a 1.1 candidate.

Ohio State junior DE Nick Bosa (abdomen) underwent surgery on Thursday and is out "indefinitely," per the school.

This almost assuredly means that Bosa will miss more time than previously hoped. The All-American defensive end suffered the injury in last Saturday's 40-28 win over TCU. HC Urban Meyer described the situation like this on his Thursday radio show on 97.1 The Fan: "He had a core muscle injury. He had surgery. I just talked to his father maybe 20 minutes ago and we hope to get him back as soon as possible. We're not sure when that will be. Obviously the recovery and obviously one of the best players in the country, maybe football, and even a better person. Incredible family. So prayers, hug them up and let's go." Bosa had already collected six TFL, four sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery for a touchdown prior to his injury. He's widely considered a top-5 overall NFL prospect.

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer announced that junior DE Nick Bosa (abdomen) will miss Saturday's game against Tulane.

Bosa will undergo further tests on his lower abdomen and groin, per Meyer. Bosa left last Saturday's game against TCU in the third quarter with the injury (or injuries). Through three games, Bosa has four sacks, six TFL, a fumble recovery for a touchdown and a forced fumble that resulted in a touchdown. He is a top-five overall prospect for the NFL Draft and remains in contention to go 1.1.

Updating a previous report, Ohio State junior DE Nick Bosa (abdomen) is dealing with a lower abdominal injury.

Bosa originally went down with what appeared to be a groin injury. He went to the locker room for treatment and returned in street clothes, walking with a noticeable limp. The injury is not believed to be very serious, although Bosa was visibly upset not being able to continue in the showdown game against TCU. It's hard to believe the team will risk playing him against an overmatched Tulane team unless this injury is indeed minor.

Ohio State junior DE Nick Bosa (groin) returned to the bench in street clothes in the third quarter of Saturday's game against TCU.

Bosa (6'4/263) went down with a groin injury early in the third quarter and subsequently took a slow walk to the locker room. He has since returned to the sideline, but won't return to the game. A contender to be drafted No. 1 overall in the spring should he declare, any long-term injury concern, here, would represent a serious loss for Ohio State. We'll continue to monitor this one as information becomes available.

Ohio State junior DE Nick Bosa went down with an apparent groin injury during the third quarter of Saturday's game against TCU.

Bosa was evaluated on the Cowboys Stadium field by team doctors before leaving the field and heading to the locker room under his own power. It goes without saying that the junior defensive end is a key cog in the Ohio State defense, as his ability to disrupt opposing offenses is something teams cannot afford to ignore. Should Bosa be unable to return, that would be a major development for both Ohio State and TCU moving forward.

In his just-released mock draft for the spring, Draftwire's Luke Easterling projected the Bills to select Ohio State junior EDGE Nick Bosa at No. 1 overall.

For reference's sake, Easterling used reverse Super Bowl odds to determine the draft order, here. While some early 2019 mock ups have leaned heavily on defenders up front, Easterling has a bit of offensive flavor in his, most notably in his slotting of West Virginia QB Will Grier to the Dolphins with the third pick. Ole Miss WR A.J. Brown (No. 4, to Colts) and Oregon QB Justin Herbert (No. 10, to Bengals) also crack the top 10. All in all, Easterling has five (!) quarterbacks -- from what's considered a weak class -- drafted in the first round, here. In addition to Grier and Herbert, he sees Drew Lock, Jarrett Stidham and Ryan Finley off the board by the end of his hypothetical first round. That's a bit rich for our blood.

Ohio State junior edge rusher Nick Bosa was named to the Team Of The Week by Pro Football Focus for his performance against Oregon State.

Bosa was excellent against the over-matched Beavers in the opener, picking up two sacks and two stops in the run game and also getting a hit and hurry on the stat sheet. Not only that, but Bosa was able to produce that in just 35 snaps in the blowout victory. The 6-foot-4, 263-pound junior is a legit candidate to be the first pick in the 2019 draft, and he showed why in the first week.
Sep 3 - 4:08 PM

The Draft Network's Trevor Sikkema projects Ohio state junior edge rusher Nick Bosa to be the No. 1 pick in the 2019 draft.

Sikkema notes, "His size, motor and talent are just about everything you could ask for in an age where defenders are rotating all along defensive lines. Bosa can line up inside and out for 3-4 and 4-3 alignments, and with health on his side he has the potential to dominate the next level for years to come."Houston DT Ed Oliver is consistently in the conversation for the No. 1 overall pick as well with this season and the combine likely determining the pecking order between them.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline lists Ohio State junior edge rusher Nick Bosa as the top draft prospect in the Big Ten.

Pauline believes there are four first-round prospects in the conference: Bosa, fellow Buckeye DL Dre'Mont Jones, and Michigan's Rashan Gary and Shea Patterson. He also has Ohio State's Jordan Fuller and Wisconsin's David Edwards in the late-first, early-second conversation to start the year. Bosa is not only considered the best prospect in the Big Ten, but one of the best prospects in all of college football to start the season. He's a legit 1-1 candidate.
