It's probably not easy to impress Nick Bosa. He's the reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year, having racked up 9.0 sacks, 25 QB hits and 11 tackles for loss in 2019. He's also got an older brother, Joey, who just signed a $135 million contract with the Los Angeles Chargers.

But San Francisco 49ers' rookie Javon Kinlaw found a way to make a great first impression anyway.

Considering Kinlaw is a 6-foot-5-inch, 311-pound human, it's hard to disagree with Bosa much on that front. But he's more than just massive, as he was considered the most athletic interior pass-rusher during the pre-draft process.

If Kinlaw is as good as Bosa seems to think he is, this defensive line should once again be a force in the 2020 season.
