The defensive end played 29 games for the Buckeyes and declared for the 2019 NFL draft forgoing his senior year.

After the San Francisco 49ers drafted him as the second overall pick, he became the third member in the Bosa family to be a first-round NFL draft pick.

Nick Bosa Sister

Football fans often wonder whether the 49ers’ rising superstar has a sister. To clear the curiosity, it is safe to say that Nick Bosa doesn’t have a sister.

But if you are a hardcore football fan, you might have heard about the “Bosa.” There are several sets of brothers in the NFL, but none stands out as much as the Bosa brothers.

The brothers are virtually identical in talents and size. Interestingly, they have nicknamed each other Big Bear and Smaller Bear. 

Meet Brother Joey Bosa

Nick Bosa’s elder brother, Joey Bosa, is also an American professional footballer. He plays outside linebacker for the Los Angeles Chargers in the NFL.

Born on July 11, 1995, Joey Bosa grew up with his brother in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Also, the athlete attended St. Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale.

After graduating from high school, Joey enrolled at Ohio State University and graduated in 2016.

In addition, he was a highly decorated Buckeye who received many National and Conference honors.

Joey began his professional football career after the San Diego Chargers selected him as the third overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

The outside linebacker made his NFL debut against the Oakland Raiders on October 9, 2016.

In his first season, he was named the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year and in the PFWA All-Rookie Team.

Furthermore, he has been selected for the Pro Bowl four times (2017, 2019, 2020, 2021).

Nick’s Dad Is Also A NFL Player

It is evident that the Bosa brothers followed in their dad’s footsteps as their father, John, also played football.

The Miami Dolphins selected John in the first round of the 1987 NFL draft, and he played three seasons for the Dolphins.

You might be surprised that John initially did not want his sons to play football. Therefore, he tried to keep them away from football as long as possible.

But once the parents allowed Joey to play at age eight, Nick was also granted permission to play eventually.
