Joey Bosa Player Overview

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Since he entered the league in 2016, Bosa ranks 4th in sacks per game and 4th among all D-linemen in tackles per game. Each of his 3 seasons that have included 10+ games ended with an elite-level overall grade from Pro Football Focus. Bosa racked up 31 QB hits last season, 10 more than his previous high and 5th most in the league.

The Chargers' pass rush lagged overall in 2019. But the team added DT Linval Joseph in free agency and should get some development from 1st-round DT Jerry Tillery in his 2nd season. The defense also added CB Chris Harris Jr. in free agency and gets S Derwin James back at full health after a foot fracture cost him most of 2019.

A better group overall can only help Bosa's QB pursuits.
