Trump praises National Football League draft pick who criticized Colin Kaepernick in 2016

The San Francisco 49ers' second overall pick in this year's National Football League draft has President Donald Trump's seal of approval.

"I was real proud of him".

And Bosa did it by himself.

Lynch added: "We had (trade) conversations going into the draft".

"It wasn't directed towards [Kaepernick's stance]", reports Bosa said.

"I mean, I respect what he's done". He apologized, writing, "I apologize for the tweets that have come to light tonight from when I was 14 and 15".

Aside from supporting Donald Trump's presidency, Bosa had a history of tweeting negative statements about black pop culture icons and entertainment properties - posts which his agent recently scrubbed from his online presence as his draft prospects looked up.

"I just couldn't sleep all night, so excited, adrenaline and everything, being around my family", Wilkins said. Their first pick was No. 74 in 1978 when they selected defensive tackle Brad Shearer after trading their first-round choice to the Browns in exchange for quarterback Mike Phipps and their second-round pick to the 49ers for defensive end Tommy Hart.

The good news is that Chicago made headlines with their first pick of the draft by taking a player who some believe is an instant-impact addition on the offensive side of the ball.

'The San Francisco @49ers just drafted @realDonalTrump supporter Nick Bosa proving the only color that matters in the @NFL is green, ' wrote @FeoChin. "I'm sorry if I hurt anybody". "I'm definitely going to think a lot more before I send something out".

"I think me being here is better still for me as a person". He (Goodell) was kind of just like cowering, seeing me, like late reaction. You see it out there how cerebral he is, how quickly he's picked up our system.

Bosa has eyed the 49ers as a flawless fit to start his career in terms of the roster, defensive scheme and potential, despite a 24-season drought without a Lombardi Trophy.

Bosa was drafted by Kaepernick's former team, the San Francisco 49ers.

At 5-foot-10, 222 pounds, Montgomery is the same height as Hunt and about 5 pounds heavier.

Bosa, a native of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., vowed to do the same - on the field rather than on social media.

"It's exactly what I've been doing all my life".

Emanuel Hall #84 of the Missouri Tigers catches a pass against defensive back Duke Dawson #7 and safety Donovan Stiner #13 of the Florida Gators in the first quarter at Memorial Stadium on November 4, 2017 in Columbia, Missouri. They came away with little question about how Bosa would fit in their locker room.

Pace and Nagy both gushed about Ridley's route-running ability and explained how route running is becoming a hard-to-find skill among wide receivers.

That the Bears went with a running back was hardly a surprise.

The real work for Montgomery and the Bears' coaching staff will begin next weekend for rookie minicamp, and then continuing into OTAs, minicamp and training camp. The Dolphins found a great guard who can also fill in as a right tackle.

Risner also had high hopes of getting drafted in Round 1, but he couldn't have been happier to get a call from the Broncos while his family was gathered in downtown Denver, about an hour south of his hometown of Wiggins, Colorado.
