The second overall pick from the 2019 NFL Draft, San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Nick Bosa is already one of the most dangerous defenders in the league.

You don't have to take our word for it, though. 49ers' all-time great offensive lineman Joe Staley knows a thing or two about pass-rushers, and he has come out and said his former teammate is already one of the toughest defenders he's ever faced.

This is some seriously impressive praise. Staley went through a list of all-time great pass-rushers, including Demarcus Ware, Aldon Smith, Justin Smith and Michael Strahan before naming Bosa. Talk about elite company.

Bosa already had 9.0 sacks, 25 quarterback hits and 16 tackles for loss in his rookie season, and by the look of things it won't be long before he's a household name.

That kind of massive praise has to have 49ers fans excited about the long-term prospects of their defense while it's being anchored by Bosa on the edge.
