RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
If there's a young talent capable of pushing Watt and Mack on the defensive line, it's probably Bosa. The third overall selection from last year's draft, Bosa's billing as a 4-3 end was no impediment to immediate success in San Diego's 3-4 scheme, even after a bizarre contract dispute that held him out for the first four games. That Bosa hit double-digit sacks as a rookie on just 562 snaps shows how special he is, and his circumstances should be even better with the Chargers switching to a 4-3 alignment this season.
The surprise third pick of the 2016 draft, Bosa should prove an immediate IDP factor on the defensive line. Regardless of whether most of his snaps are at 3-4 end or on the edge in nickel formations, Bosa is an unusual talent who has the violence to succeed in traffic and the athleticism to evade blockers. The Chargers didn't draft him third overall to let him come along slowly, so expect Bosa to make an impact early in his career. He totaled 37 tackles for loss and 18.5 sacks the last two years at Ohio State.
