Nick Bosa is the 80th first-round pick in Ohio State history and the 67th in the common era (since 1967).
He is the first member of Ohio State’s 2016 recruiting class to be drafted.
Ohio State has had a player drafted in the first round four years in a row, including two last year, three in 2017 and five in 2016.
Nick Bosa played only three games last year before suffering a core muscle injury that required surgery.
He was still an honorable mention All-Big Ten selection and finished his career with 29 tackles for loss and 17.5 sacks in 30 games.
In 2017, Bosa was the Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year and a first-team All-American.
He was long considered the top prospect in the draft, but the Arizona Cardinals passed on him to select Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray first overall.
