SANTA CLARA (CBS SF) — On the eve of training camp opening, the San Francisco 49ers Thursday signed top draft pick Nick Bosa and second round selection Deebo Samuel to four-year deals.

With the signings, the 49ers — who report to camp on Friday — now have all eight of the team’s 2019 draft picks under contract.

During an injury-shortened junior season in 2018, Bosa collected 14 tackles, six tackles for loss, 4.0 sacks, two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble in just three games.

In 2017, Bosa was named Big Ten Smith-Brown Defensive Lineman of the Year and an All-American by the American Football Coaches Association after appearing in 14 games and registering 34 tackles, 16 tackles for loss, a team-high 8.5 sacks and one forced fumble.

A 21-year-old native of Fort Lauderdale, FL, Bosa attended St. Thomas Aquinas High School.
