After months of preparation, Bosa finally showed off his speed at the NFL Scouting Combine.This morning, Bosa ran the 40-yard dash as part of his drills. Bosa ran an unofficial 40-time of 4.84 seconds.While not a record-breaking mark by any stretch, the mark does put Bosa in very good company. Houston Texans pass rusher J.J. Watt ran the exact same time at the 2011 combine.However, Watt’s 40-time was considerably more impressive given that he weighed nearly 30 pounds heavier than Bosa does. Unofficial time of 4.84 seconds for Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa in his first 40-yard dash attempt, per NFL Network.— Dan Hope (@Dan_Hope) March 3, 2019Here’s video of Bosa’s run:#OSU DL Nick Bosa with a 4.84u on his 1st 40 attempt. pic.twitter.com/cx4LMCl2IV— Steve Frederick (@_SteveFrederick) March 3, 2019Bosa played in just three games this past season before suffering an injury. He opted to leave the team and prepare for the NFL rather than attempt to return mid-season. He finished his junior year with 4.0 sacks, 6.0 tackles for loss and 14 tackles in those three games.His breakout year came as a sophomore, where in 14 games he had 8.5 sacks, 16.0 tackles for loss, two passes defended, a forced fumble, and 34 tackles.Bosa also has a family history of NFL dominance. His older brother Joey Bosa is a star pass rusher for the LA Chargers, while his father, John Bosa, was a first-round draft pick by the Miami Dolphins in 1987.Many mock drafts currently have Bosa as the No. 1 overall draft pick in 2019.last_img read more
