Nick Bosa hopes Chase Young will succeed him as the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year, calling the 2020 prospect a “real deal.”

Defensive end Young is considered one of the best players in the 2,220 class, earning 7.8 sacks in three years at Ohio State.

Only New England Patriots great Mike Vrabel, with 3 রয়েছে, is even more in Buckeye’s history and broke a school record last year with a .5.5 sack in the Young single season.

Bosa, who helped the San Francisco 49ers reach the Super Bowl at the end of a brilliant debut, played college football with Young in 2017 and 2018 and hoped he would find success at the next level.

“I think he’ll be a defensive rookie next year or so,” Bosa said.

“I think his chances are just like anybody’s, just with his physical qualities – he’s 6’5”, 270 [pounds], Goes like a receiver, strong.

“We have to get together and work, bring him right, handling the NFL is a bit different, but once he gets the hang of it, he’s going to be the real deal.”

Bosa was drafted last year with the second overall pick, a place before where older brother Joey was selected by the Chargers in the 25th.

The duo will already appear as the Pro Bowler and the last elite defensive lineman to make the Young appearance out of Ohio State, with the younger Bossa crediting Larry Johnson for the school’s proud draft record.

“He knows how to develop players,” Bosa explained.

“If you give him five stars [prospect], He’s probably going to be in the top five. “

Although Bose’s promotion ended in disappointment when the Dancers were defeated by the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV, he made one of the best rookie seasons in recent times.

The 22-year-old has had nine sacks and four more in three playoff games in the regular season, and he believes he has only scratched the surface of his potential.

“I think there’s a lot more [to come]”I think I’ve improved a lot this year, too,” Bosa added.

“If I can make a similar improvement from my junior season at Ohio State, if I repeat next year, there are going to be some big improvements.”
