Nick Bosa, the San Francisco 49ers’ defensive end, expressed his feelings about winning the 2022 NFL Defensive Player of the Year at the Super Bowl, stating that he wished he could have enjoyed the moment more. As the NFL Honors show is set to announce the winner, Bosa praised Myles Garrett, acknowledging his potential as a frontrunner for the award due to his exceptional performance during the season.
Bosa shared his admiration for Garrett’s skills, highlighting how the defensive scheme played to Garrett’s strengths on the field.

Bosa emphasized that winning such an honor is a significant achievement in the competitive league of talented defensive players.
Based on the voting results of The Associated Press NFL All-Pro and the Pro Football Writers of America, Garrett’s chances of winning look promising. Moreover, his fellow players, like 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk and former Browns safety Tashaun Gipson, acknowledged Garrett’s exceptional talent and expressed their support for him. Gipson even went on to say that Garrett is one of the best defensive players in the league, deserving of the award due to his exceptional skills on the field.
The anticipation for the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award continues to grow, and the support for Myles Garrett’s possible victory is evident within the football community. As the announcement draws near, the excitement and tension for who will take home the prestigious award builds, heightening the anticipation for this momentous occasion.
