The best defensive player on the PFF draft board, Ohio State edge defender Nick Bosa enters the 2019 NFL Draft as the class' top pass-rusher and very few weaknesses in his on-field play.

The Ohio State defensive end, who is projected to be one of the top picks in this month's National Football League draft, told ESPN he deleted certain posts, including a 2016 tweet in which he called former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick a "clown", due to his potential landing spot. In an interview with ESPN's Kevin Van Valkenburg published Tuesday, Bosa succintly addressed why he recently chose to stop posting political comments, including his support for President Trump and criticism of some on the social justice left, particularly Colin Kaepernick. Apparently, that's made him change his behavior online. Because there's a strong chance he ends up in the Bay Area, the former Ohio State star has been preparing accordingly.

This isn't the first time Trump has hinted at wanting to change troops' rules of engagement when operating inside their own country.

"I had to", Bosa told ESPN. Due to yet another poor season, the 49ers have the second pick in the draft (his brother went third). He has been widely projected to join the 49ers, which hold the No. 2 overall pick, if the Arizona Cardinals select Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick.

Comparing Nick Bosa to Joey Bosa comes easy. I asked why he seemed to abandon something he had previously embraced.
