Going to be very hard to top the Mannings given that they both may very well end up in the hall of fame (and then there's the fact that they are both quarterbacks, so the positional importance will give them more weight when people are considering something like that). 

That is true, Eli having 2 rings and both being QB's will keep them higher. But in terms of being top at their position, I think its more likely that both Bosa's are top 5 for longer than both Mannings were, if they even ever were.

I just don't know if that's quite true. I'm sure Oliver is an extremely impressive athlete, but Donald had one of the all time great Combine performances for a DT. I like Oliver, but I'm not 100% convinced he's going to be great in the NFL. I think he'll be very good, but Donald is just on another level.

 

 

As was similarly understated with (Joey) Bosa as well, Donald's level of technical polish coming out of college was massively underheralded.  Admittedly, I need to watch more tape on Oliver to really get a feeling for how clean his technique is, but we've seen uber-athletes who were clearly getting by on out-athleting the opposition in college peter out in the pro's or, at least, take a little while to find their footing before they really start putting up "dominating" performances (case in recent hand: DeForrest Buckner).

Nick Bosa's pedigree speaks for itself in terms of the level of technical coaching he's received and the benchmark that he knows he's going to be held to (his brother) as far as his technical proficiency.  Joey had some of the best handwork of a DL prospect in a long time.  Nick's isn't far off, and he still has time to further that development before draft season rolls around.

Oliver stands alone in his comparison IMO, in terms of athleticism nobody, except Donald but in play wise, Warren Sapp/Suh

My most immediate comparison is Suh, but again, I'm not sure how technically proficient he is compared to Suh (as a prospect).  Suh was pretty far along in his development.  I remember massive amounts of back and forth discussion about Suh's technical development in the many back and forths folks had on this site and other in the prospect-to-prospect comparisons of Suh vs Gerald McCoy.

I waa around then, and guarantee I had something to say...😂. In terms of the comparison, the raw power, stength at the point of attack and dominance, but the crazy thing is, we still yet to factor in his unreal athleticism. 

I would compare Rashan Gary to Gerald McCoy if he played 3 tech.

Honestly, I think it'll be impressive enough if they surpass a brother pairing like the Barbers. 

Don't forget everyone's favorite NFL brothers.  The Matthews, Bruce is in the Hall and Clay Jr. is on the ballot this year.  There is some stiff competition for the best brothers to ever play.
