When the Arizona Cardinals selected Ohio State DE Nick Bosa with the No. 2 overall pick, he helped his family make some incredible history.
Nick Bosa: 4th member of his family selected in 1st Round in Common Draft Era:— NFL Research (@NFLResearch) April 26, 2019
• Nick Bosa - #2 in 2019 (SF)
• Joey Bosa (Nick’s brother) - #3 in 2016 (SD)
• John Bosa (Nick’s father) - #16 in 1987 (MIA)
• Eric Kumerow (Nick’s uncle) - #16 in 1988 (MIA)#NFLDraft
Bosa became the 4th member of his family drafted in the 1st Round in Common Draft Era, with his brother Joey being the most recent draftee in 2016. The Bosa family will now be discussed in the same vein as the Manning and Gronkowski families, who each have had three or more members of their family play in the NFL.
The Bears have a connection to the great football families in the nation, as three-time Pro Bowler Kyle Long’s brother Chris is a member of the Philadelphia Eagles, and their father Howie is an NFL Hall of Famer. But nonetheless, looking at Bosa complete the string of 1st round selections for their family made Long take to Twitter to tell the world how he really felt about the accomplishment.
