Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State
Joey Bosa is the more than obvious pick at this point in the draft. He is the undisputed best player on the board and Tampa Bay needs serious help in their pass rush. Bosa would take some pressure away from teammate Gerald McCoy so now they can both get more one-on-one opportunities down the stretch. I do think that they need dramatic improvement in their secondary as well, but you can't pass on a player like Bosa if he is there at No. 9. If Bosa turns out the way he is projected to, Tampa would be haunted by that choice for years to come if they were to pass.
Joey was dominant on a team that achieved excellence for every year he was there. He played in a conference known for its hand in the dirt, run-heavy style offenses and big boys up front, and he dominated. I feel that he is one of the most NFL ready prospects in the draft. Coaches game planned around him in college, and I don't see that changing here at the next level. He is quick off of the ball and he can beat you by going around you or going through you. If he catches you out of position, he can easily hit that blocker with a push pull move so look out Mr. Quarterback.
To put it easily, Bosa is a block shedding machine with a nonstop motor for playmaking. He will be a treat to watch on Sundays for the upcoming decade.
