The 2019 NFL Draft will yield some of the best defensive line prospects in years and the first round will be dominated by true difference makers. Some of the players taken in the second and third round could have been drafted in the first round other years. Below are some of the players who will likely go in the first round and who you should target in your IDP drafts.
Nick Bosa, DE Ohio State
The younger brother of Joey Bosa, Nick could be a better prospect and should be the top overall pick in the NFL and IDP drafts. Bosa is a pass rushing phenom, his speed to get around the end with bend and balance is among the best I have ever witnessed. He has great handwork, burst, and excels in run defense and play recognition.
Bosa sat out most of 2018 to recover from injury and prepare for the NFL – his 2017 tape is ridiculous, they were rarely any plays in which he wasn’t the first player in the face of the quarterback on passing plays. Pick Bosa with confidence first overall in your draft this year.
