The Arizona Cardinals continue to weigh out all their options for the first pick.
Per NFL Media’s Ian Rapaport via Twitter, the Arizona Cardinals are bringing in both Nick Bosa and Quinnen Williams for a pre-draft meeting.
Both Bosa and Williams have been linked to being the top pick. However, Bosa has been dubbed the best option for the better half of a year now, while Williams continued to improve his draft stock in a dominant junior year at Alabama that saw him earn Aaron Donald comparisons.
Along with Kyler Murray, Bosa and Williams round out the top three prospects that the Arizona Cardinals could take with the first pick if they decide to keep it.
Bosa, an edge defender, has earned comparisons to his older brother Joey Bosa, the No. 3 pick in the 2016 draft and 2017 Pro-Bowler. Like Joey, Nick can take over games with an explosive first-step, an array of pass-rushing moves, and an overwhelming 6-4, 266-pound frame. However, he’s more well-rounded than Joey due to his ability to set the edge while defending the run.
According to Pro Football Focus, Bosa played 1,006 snaps at Ohio State and made the best of them. He recorded 18.0 sacks, 22 quarterback hits, 77 hurries, and 55 run stops. His outstanding tape earned him an elite grade of 93.1.
But, Bosa’s strong tape, measurables, and athletisism don’t mean he’s a lock for the pick. After all, Quinnen Williams, an interior defensive lineman, is just as impressive, if not more.
Like Bosa, Williams possesses the size, measurables, and technique to dominate against both the run and the pass. Despite being 6-3, 303-pounds, Williams ran a 4.83 second 40-yard-dash. Yes, you read that correctly.
Williams took college football by storm in 2018. Per PFF, he finished the season with 10.0 sacks, 16 quarterback hits, 30 hurries, and 52 run-stops (!), which earned him an elite grade of 95.0. Even more impressive, he only played 155 snaps before the 2018 season, per PFF.
