  NFL teams have posed the question frequently to Larry Johnson, and in one sense it's an honor. It also puts Johnson in a nearly impossible quandary. In his six seasons as Ohio State's defensive line coach, Johnson has recruited and developed an impressive number of linemen into NFL players. Until now, two stood above the rest: the Bosa brothers, Joey and Nick. Joey went No. 3 overall in the 2016 draft to the San Diego (now Los Angeles) Chargers and became the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year. Nick did the same for the San Francisco 49ers last year as the No. 2 overall pick. Now comes Chase Young, and well, you can guess the question Johnson gets: Which of the three is the best? Johnson is wise enough to deflect. "I'm not saying," Johnson said with a laugh. "All three have the potential to be the best."

But he did give a breakdown of the defensive ends. "Nick is very strong and powerful, a great bender," Johnson said, referring to his flexibility. "Joey's a great technician. He stays in his wheelhouse to do exactly what he does best." Young, he said, might be the most physically gifted of the three. "Those are all great athletes, (but) Chase is a different breed," Johnson said. "He can run. He has great get-off. He can bend. He can drop into coverage. He's got great hands. So he has a little more things in his toolbox that he can use, but they're all great players." - Columbus Dispatch
