Ohio State star Nick Bosa is likely to be the No. 1 pick in next year's NFL Draft. The Buckeyes defensive end, whose brother Joey was taken third overall by the Los Angeles Chargers in 2016, was named First Team All-Big Ten a year ago and figures to be one of the most feared defensive players in college football again this year. But some aren't thrilled with some of the opinions he expresses on social media these days.

Bosa, earlier this week, took to Twitter to tell his followers that he thought the movie Black Panther was the "worst" Marvel movie that had been put out. He was crushed for the tweet as a result.

One NFL writer - Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman - took to Twitter in the aftermath with an interesting take. He noted that this isn't the first time Bosa has taken a negative stance when it comes to something involving either a black entertainer or a black athlete.

Some agree with Freeman. Others think it's a stretch to imply that Bosa might be racist.

Jason Whitlock and Clay Travis did segments on Freeman's tweet. Breitbart also wrote it up.

One thing is for sure. NFL teams will ask Bosa about his tweets - all of them - before they draft him next year.
