NFL Draft Prospect Hides Trump Support

Former Ohio State football star and current NFL draft prospect Nick Bosa has chosen to hide his support for President Trump and his distaste with the Kaepernick protest.

The reason: he could face retribution.

According to The Daily Wire:

Former Ohio State defensive star Nick Bosa has made clear in the past that he isn't afraid to make his political opinions known, but that doesn't mean he's going to hurt his draft stock doing so. In an interview with ESPN's Kevin Van Valkenburg published Tuesday, Bosa succintly addressed why he recently chose to stop posting political comments, including his support for President Trump and criticism of some on the social justice left, particularly Colin Kaepernick.


"Last year he seemed to delight in posting political takes, including his support for President Trump, on Twitter and needling dissenters," writes Van Valkenburg, adding: "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," Van Valkenburg states.

When the reporter asked Bosa why, he responded, "I had to. There is a chance I might end up in San Francisco."

Many NFL analysts have said that the likelihood of Bosa going to San Francisco is high. The decision for him to remove himself from political arguments seems like a good business move on his part.
