DE Joey Bosa Meets With Cleveland Browns at NFL Combine

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Ohio State DE Joey Bosa met with at least 13 teams at the NFL Combine, including the Cleveland Browns:

Bosa was at one point projected to be the first overall pick of the entire draft. Leading up to the NFL Combine, his stock had fallen a hair. At the NFL Combine, some people didn't feel he lived up to the 40-time he needed, but I can't imagine that numbers like these in other drills will hurt him very much:

When Bosa was interviewed at the NFL Combine, he talked about his fit in a 4-3 vs. a 3-4 defense:

(Is it frustrating that you might not go No. 1 because you’re more suited to a 4-3 defensive team and the top ones play a 3-4?): "It’s not frustrating. I can see myself playing anywhere on the defensive line. I’ve been working standing up and working on my linebacker drops, so I definitely feel I’m ready to play in a 3-4 or a 4-3."

(Would you prefer a 4-3 team over a 3-4?): "Yeah, I guess you can say I’d be more comfortable because I’ve never played in a 3-4. But I can’t speak for it because I’ve never played in a 3-4. I think I’ll be comfortable staying wherever they see me."
