Other than Kyler Murray, there are other prospects to watch out for the 2019 NFL Draft. One of them is Nick Bosa, the younger brother of Joey Bosa of the Los Angeles Chargers. Seeing how 21-year-old from Ohio State could end up being selected by the San Francisco 49ers, the defensive end decided to clean up his Twitter account to avoid further controversy.

According to the San Francisco Gate, Bosa deleted tweets tied up to U.S. president Donald Trump, Beyoncé and Colin Kaepernick. With the possibility of him joining the 49ers, the 21-year-old said he just “had to.”

Bosa had already drawn controversy last spring when a media outlet started calling his attention because of his dubious tweets. He would eventually be called a racist although there were some fans who stood up for the former Ohio State pass rusher.

Looking beyond his social media activities, however, there is no question that Bosa looms as one of the top picks in the 2019 NFL Draft set to take place on April 25. Built like a rhinoceros, the consensus is that he will be selected by the 49ers with the Arizona Cardinals expected to pick up Murray with the first overall pick.

For the benefit of those who may not know, Bosa forewent his senior year at Ohio State after undergoing core muscle surgery. This ruled him out indefinitely and such eventually forced him to withdraw from Ohio State for the rest of the 2018 season.

Despite missing action for a year, pundits believe that such will not stop NFL teams from selecting Bosa. USA Today believes he could be the steal of the 2019 NFL Draft. However, he will not be the only elite defender in this year’s class.

Aside from Bosa, there is Quinnen Williams of Alabama and Josh Allen of Kentucky. But Bosa’s complete skill set makes him a versatile prospect and someone that can give the 49ers a big boost. He can attack opposing offenses from any alignment although there are concerns on his lack of athleticism and explosiveness when compared to other pass rushers.

And there is, of course, the injury angle of Bosa. This will be another point that 49ers or any other team will consider – prior to the 2019 NFL Draft or in future trades involving the 21-year-old. Hence, his first year will be closely scrutinized by pundits and team owners moving forward.
