Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa remained busy most of Wednesday, on the eve of the NFL draft.
Bosa, along with 20 other draft prospects, took part in an event to assemble 8,000 food kits for children as part of an NFL event, “Huddle against Hunger.” His life will change Thursday when he is expected to be one of the top picks in the draft. Bosa, however, kept himself occupied, rather than consider all of the possibilities.
“I’m getting kept pretty busy right now, so I’m not able to think about it quite as much,” Bosa said. “It’s awesome. It’s what I’ve been working for since I was seven years old. I think it’ll really hit me tomorrow. I’m just really excited to find out where the next journey is.”
Bosa has been mentioned recently as a candidate to be the No. 1 overall pick of the Arizona Cardinals. But if the Cardinals select Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray, Bosa would appear to be the favorite to land with the 49ers at No. 2.
The 49ers have been on Bosa’s radar for a while as a distinct possibility. He recently told ESPN that he has refrained from political tweets because his conservative views run in contrast to the liberal-leaning Bay Area.
