Brock Bowers NFL Draft Projection: Where Will The Georgia TE Land?

Fact Checked by Thomas Leary

Few college tight ends have ever entered the NFL Draft with the level of hype that Georgia’s Brock Bowers will this spring, as the two-time John Mackey award winner takes his talents to the professional level. Fresh off a three-year run in Athens where he helped lead the Bulldogs to a pair of CFP titles while winning the top award for tight ends in the nation, Bowers is likely to be one of the first players selected in April’s NFL Draft. If only there had been Georgia sports betting during his time in Athens.

The team at Pro Football Focus lists Bowers as the No. 5 overall prospect in this year’s draft class, which means that some team in the top half of this year’s first round will likely land a generational talent at the position. Bowers is the only player in CFB history to win the Mackey Award twice, finishing his three-year run at UGA with 175 catches for 2,538 yards and 26 touchdowns across 35 games.  

With all that in mind, broke down the odds on where Bowers will go next, giving out hypothetical odds on which NFL team will land the tight end’s services in April's Draft.

Where Will Brock Bowers Land?

New Los Angeles Chargers (5-12) head coach Jim Harbaugh would love this projected-Top 10 pick if it landed to him at No. 5 in the first round. They are the favorite to do so at +250 (28.6% chance). 

The Indianapolis Colts (9-8) are the second possibility at +400 (20%) and would be an immediate help offensively to second-year quarterback Anthony Richardson, who would be returning healthy from a season-ending shoulder injury he suffered in Week 5. 

The Cincinnati Bengals (9-8), who pick 18th, would be the third destination at +500 (16.7%) and would deepen the offensive weapons quarterback Joe Burrow would have at his disposal. 

Rounding out the top six: New York Jets (7-10, No. 10 pick) +1000 (9.1%), Denver Broncos (8-9, No. 12 pick) +1200 (7.7%) and the New Orleans Saints (9-8, No. 14 pick) +1500 (6.2%). Other teams not on the list are at +700 (12.5%).
