Overview:

Bosa is my top prospect, and has been since the process began last June, he is just a beast pass rusher, he has great size for a 4-3 end, he was a sack machine at OSU, and a tackling machine. He has good speed, and gets a ton of pressure on the quarterback. On the other side, he is light in the weight department, and it is still unclear where he fits best, as a 4-3 DE, or a 3-4 OLB. With that all said, I expect Bosa to be a 1st round pick, and a top 5-10 choice on April 28.
