The 49ers will practice without top pick DE Nick Bosa for "the next few weeks" (according to NBC Bay Area's Matt Maiocco) because of a Grade 1 hamstring strain. That's the lowest level on the scale, so it's not a serious situation in May. But Bosa's hamstring will bear watching come training camp. His brother missed the 1st 4 games of his 2016 rookie campaign with hamstring trouble. Nick Bosa, of course, sat out nearly all of his final Ohio State season following sports hernia surgery.

The 49ers selected DE Nick Bosa with the 2nd pick of the NFL Draft. He'll quickly find time in a front 7 that sports DeForest Buckner primarily on the inside and just traded for Dee Ford. The Niners tied for just 22nd in the league in sacks last year (37). Bosa missed most of his final season at Ohio State but racked up 8.5 sacks and 16 tackles for loss as a 2017 sophomore. Expect him to be a productive player quickly, and he should be a high pick in dynasty rookie drafts with IDPs.
