Nick Bosa has turn out to be a quarterback’s absolute worst nightmare.

Earlier than he was main the NFL in “sackaroonis” with the 49ers, Bosa was a 21-year-old prime draft prospect coming into the 2019 NFL Draft. And apparently, he issued a not-so-subtle warning to the group with the No. 1 general choose in the event that they handed on him.

“When [former Arizona Cardinals coach] Kliff Kingsbury and I received collectively to go to see gamers and have dinners, we went to Fort Lauderdale, Florida and had dinner with Nick Bosa previous to the draft,” then-Cardinals common supervisor Steve Keim lately stated on FOX Sports activities’ “The Herd.” “[We] cherished him clearly, our highest-grade man on the board. Wonderful in each approach. The one factor you needed to say that was adverse was in all probability if he received injured sooner or later, which you couldn’t forecast.

“So we’re leaving the dinner, and we’re strolling out of Mastro’s in Fort Lauderdale, and I’ll always remember, he places his arm round me and Kliff Kingsbury, each of us in mainly a headlock, and he stated, ‘I believe you guys in all probability are going to finish up taking that little quarterback, and in case you do…,’ he seemed over at me and he stated, ‘Steve, I’ll hang-out you for the remainder of your profession.’ ”

“We received again into the SUV, Kliff and I, and I keep in mind we each checked out one another with broad eyes and I stated, ‘Man, I hope he can’t catch him,’ ” Keim stated, speaking about Murray. “And he actually by no means did which was an excellent factor.”

It is secure to say Bosa’s 49ers teammate George Kittle appreciated the humorous story.
