In one of his first significant public discussions since his college football career was prematurely ended by injury, Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa said Saturday at the NFL's scouting combine he's fully healthy and ready to be the top pick of the April draft.
"I've been talking myself up pretty good to (NFL teams),'' Bosa said. "I'm ready to get on the field, get on the bench ... and definitely leave no doubt.''
Bosa said he will do a full workout Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium when the defensive linemen and linebackers will go through their on-field work. He added he will meet Sunday night with the Arizona Cardinals, who have the No. 1 pick in the draft. He said Friday he will meet with the other teams in the top eight of this year's draft, as well.
Bosa's junior season at Ohio State ended in October when he suffered a core muscle injury. He eventually withdrew from school to both rehab the injury as well as begin his preparation for the NFL draft in earnest.
