Persistent, just like his brother. Can rush the passer or defend the run equally well. Does not stay blocked. Is an overpowering bull rusher, but also has a unique pass rush skill set.
Bosa tore his ACL as a senior, but he is working to be ready for fall camp. There is no need to push him, but if he shows that he is ready, he will be given a chance to play. Urban Meyer said that he will play this year.
