The San Francisco 49ers made former Ohio State edge rusher Nick Bosa the No. 2 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft on Thursday night. It’s a move that pretty much everyone expected.
It also means that Nick joins his father and brother as first-round picks. Nick’s father, John, was a first-round pick of the Miami Dolphins back in 1987. Meanwhile, his older brother, Joey, was a top-five selection of the then San Diego Chargers back in 2016.
In responding to this news, Chicago Bears offensive lineman Kyle Long had a great take. He also decided to throw some fun shade in his father’s direction.
Of course, he’s talking about Hall of Famer Howie Long going in the second-round of the 1981 NFL Draft to the Raiders. His older brother, Chris, was the No. 2 overall pick of the St. Louis Rams back in 2008.
Knowing Howie, he’ll have some fun with this. But don’t put it past the old man to toss something back in his son’s direction.
