Player Outlook
It was surprising that the Raiders took Bowers with their first-round pick, giving them a very unique talent who could shine as soon as this year. An instant hit at Georgia, Bowers scored 13 touchdowns as a freshman, then totaled 13 touchdowns with over 1,600 receiving yards in his next two seasons (25 games). Bowers also worked on occasion as a rusher, including when he lined up as a Wildcat QB. He is very much a mismatch tight end in the mold of George Kittle, capable of working downfield for splash plays or taking short passes a good distance through his ruthless power and speed. He's just not as effective as a blocker, but that's something Fantasy managers don't have to sweat. There is an injury track record with Bowers but he's too promising of a player to ignore. Consider him a start-worthy Fantasy tight end with much more upside than downside if you get in him Round 8 or later. In rookie-only drafts he could go as high as fourth overall (especially in one-QB leagues) or as late as 10th overall (much more likely in Superflex/two-QB leagues).

  • Raiders' Brock Bowers: Las Vegas bound

    The Raiders selected Bowers in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft, 13th overall. Despite investing a high second-round pick in tight end Michael Mayer in 2023, the Raiders couldn't pass up on Bowers in the first round. Bowers is the highest-drafted tight end since Kyle Pitts in 2021 and has an impressive prospect profile. Athletic enough to run from the slot and split defenders down the seam but physical enough to play in-line and block, Bowers is the complete package. He led Georgia in receiving in all three of his seasons in Athens and left school with the second-most touchdown catches (26) in program history. A hamstring injury prevented Bowers from testing at the combine and his measurements (6-3, 243) are not that of a prototypical tight end. However, the film and standout production paint Bowers as a weapon in the passing game and that will be his primary function in the Raider offense. Given Bowers' skill set and high draft capital, he projects to be the primary tight end over Mayer right away.

  • Brock Bowers: Missing pro day due to hamstring

    Bowers is dealing with a minor hamstring injury and won't work out Wednesday at Georgia's pro day, Taylor Bisciotti of NFL Network reports. Jordan Reid of reports that Bowers plans to hold a separate workout for NFL teams on April 10. He's considered the best tight end in the 2024 class by a wide margin and likely will be picked in the first half of the first round. Bowers missed a chunk of the 2023 season with an ankle injury that required tightrope surgery, but he made it back for Georgia's final two regular-season games and its SEC title game loss to Alabama, catching 15 passes for 147 yards and two touchdowns over his final three appearances to close out a prolific collegiate career shortly before his 21st birthday. His 2,538 receiving yards were the most ever by an SEC tight end, and he scored 31 touchdowns (26 receiving) in 40 games across three seasons.
