From the moment Nick Bosa announced his main focus will be to prepare for the 2019 NFL Draft, there were so many takes on his decision. Well, we can now add Tim Tebow to the list of people chiming in on the conversation.

Tebow understands the business aspect behind the move, but the former Florida superstar doesn't necessarily agree with it.

During his appearance on ESPN's First Take, Tebow explained why he thinks the star defensive end should have stayed at Ohio State.


"Listen, your brother (former Ohio State and current Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa) is making tens of millions and he can support you," Tebow said. "Listen, he's your brother. And you're probably, even if you get injured, you're still going to be a high draft pick. But I get that it's a huge, it's a lot of money, it's life changing so I understand that. I'm not trying to knock him for it.

"I'm just trying to say when you look back, when you're a grandfather, wouldn't you love to take your grandkids back to Ohio State and say, 'Look no one thought we could beat Alabama. And they had this Heisman Trophy winner in Tua Tagovailoa, but I came back for the semifinal we were No. 4, we beat the No. 1 team.'"

Obviously, the Buckeyes would receive a boost to their title chances with Bosa on the roster. However, his stock is already high and risking an injury that could affect his draft position seems rather risky.

Sure, defeating Alabama would be an amazing accomplishment for Bosa, but the ultimate goal is making the NFL.

Ohio State is currently undefeated, even without its top playmaker on defense. The Buckeyes will face Purdue on the road this weekend, as they continue their pursuit of perfection.
