Analyzing Mekhi Becton and George Fant’s battle against Nick Bosa and Dee Ford

After a sterling debut, Becton is facing a terrifying stretch of five consecutive games against teams with intimidating edge rushers. It starts on Sunday with Bosa, who rushed off the defense’s right side (across from the left tackle) on 77.7% of his rushes in 2019 and 91.7% of his rushes against Arizona in Week 1.

Bosa has everything in his toolbox – power, speed, finesse – but his approach is built mainly around power. He looks to explode off the ball, quickly get his hands into the tackle’s chest, drive him deep into the pocket, and shed the block with savvy hand usage.
