3 Best Landing Spots For Brock Bowers in the 2024 NFL Draft

With all of the talks surrounding quarterbacks heading into Thursday night, Georgia tight end Brock Bowers seems to be falling into a secondary storyline.

That is not the case for a player who has drawn comparisons to Rob Gronkowski and Travis Kelce.

Bowers has been the consensus number one tight end in college football for two years now. He is preparing to enter the 2024 NFL Draft as the best prospect at the position in years. There will be plenty of interest in Bowers but ultimately, where will he land?

Below are three intriguing landing spots for Bowers on Thursday night.

3. Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears will be sporting a new franchise quarterback when they make Caleb Williams the first-overall pick in the draft. The Bears added Keenan Allen on the outside for their new quarterback and the offense is intriguing all of a sudden.

Chicago still has Cole Kmet on the roster but teams have run a two-tight end system before — and it has been successful.

Kmet has been productive for the Bears and is a young, talented tight end. This should not sway the Bears away from thinking about Bowers at No. 9.

2. Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts are a team that has been linked to Bowers in the middle of the first round.

Anthony Richardson suffered a season-ending injury last year and will return looking to avoid a major sophomore slump. The Colts got a deal done with Michael Pittman Jr. in the offseason. Now, an elite tight end would solidify the offense. This could be a nice safety blanket for a young quarterback.

We have seen many times over the years where tight ends act as safety blankets for quarterbacks. Sam LaPorta is an example of a rookie tight end making an immediate impact. Bowers could be a similar piece in Indy.

1. New York Jets

The New York Jets have many options at No. 10 in this year’s draft but Bowers remains one of the best.

This offseason, the Jets needed to bolster the offensive line and it was clear that this is where the team would go in the draft. Instead, Joe Douglas added Tyron Smith and Morgan Moses at tackle on either side. This gives the front office flexibility to add another offense weapon for Aaron Rodgers.

Garrett Wilson has looked like a legitimate No. 1 receiver. Mike Williams inked a one-year deal with the Jets. Now, a tight end like Bowers could complete an offense that is hoping to have Rodgers healthy and match one of the best defenses in football.
