The NFL draft is just around the corner which means social media posts of potential draft picks will be under heavy scrutiny until the draft is over.
Ohio State’s Nick Bosa has been mindful about his past social media political hot takes by deleting several Pro-Trump tweets just in case he gets drafted by the San Francisco 49ers.
[Bosa is] also more politically minded. Last year he seemed to delight in posting political takes, including his support for President Trump, on Twitter and needling dissenters. (He also caused a minor social media stir by criticizing Beyonce, Black Panther and Colin Kaepernick, all eventually deleted.) As the combine drew near, though, his online behavior grew increasingly bland. I asked why he seemed to abandon something he had previously embraced.
“I had to,” he says. “There is a chance I might end up in San Francisco.”
Unfortunately for Bosa, someone learned that the OSU linebacker has liked several questionable Instagram posts in the past made by friends that include the N-word and gay slurs.
(Update the Instagram post in question has been deleted)
The Niners, who pick #2 at the draft, don’t seem too concerned with Bosa’s social media activity.
