Let's all be honest. Nick Bosa would be ready for the NFL. You know it. Opponents know it. He knows it. "I think I would," Bosa said Friday after Ohio State's practice. "But an extra year of development is really important. I think I'll be a lot more ready next year." He doesn't have a choice anyway. The defensive end is a true sophomore and the rules say you can't turn pro until you're three years out of high school. So that means Ohio State next season will have on its roster what the Buckeyes have had many times a before - an NFL-ready talent in college. That talent is doing a lot of what his older brother Joey did at Ohio State before going as the No. 3 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft after his junior year. Nick was named the Big Ten's Defensive Lineman of the Year (an award his brother won twice) and earned a first-team All-American nod that landed him a tree in Buckeye Grove, where his brother is also honored. "I get a tree next to Joey's," Bosa said. "We already got the spot. It's pretty awesome." But Nick didn't get this season what Joey did as a sophomore in 2014 - a national title.
Nick Bosa knows he's ready for the NFL but wants a national title like his brother
