NFL Rookie of the Year: Murray, Bosa take home awards for offense, defense

The first two picks in the 2019 NFL draft have already lived up to their billing. 

On Saturday, No. 1 pick Kyler Murray was named the 2019 AP Offensive Rookie of the Year, while No. 2 selection Nick Bosa took home the 2019 AP Defensive Rookie of the Year award.

Bosa finished his regular season with 47 tackles and nine sacks, and proved to already be among the league’s best pass rushers. He added 16  tackles for loss and 25 QB hits for the NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers. 

In two playoff games, the Ohio State product has 10 tackles, four QB hits and three sacks. He will look to continue to frustrate opposing offenses on Sunday when Bosa’s 49ers go up against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV.
