2024 RTSports Outlook

Bowers was the first tight end picked in this year's draft, getting selected by the Raiders with the 13th pick. Bowers is a dynamic player at the tight end spot. He has very good speed for the position and runs tough routes. He also is very strong and does well with the contested catch, making him a tough cover. Bowers isn't a top notch blocker but can improve on that area with more seasoning. Bowers should start from day one for the Raiders.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Bowers is an exciting talent at the tight end spot. Some rookies produced big last year, so don't be surprised if Bowers follows suit. He is capable of being top 10 overall at the position. Look for around 60 receptions for 700 yards and five touchdowns.

RotoBaller's Outlook

The Las Vegas Raiders selected tight end Brock Bowers with the 13th overall pick in April's draft. It was a bit of a surprise given the team had just used a second-round pick on tight end Michael Mayer the previous year. Nonetheless, Bowers takes over as the clear TE1 for Las Vegas. While he is arguably the most talented tight end prospect to come out in recent years, things might be tough in 2024. The Raiders figure to have a run-oriented offense and Gardner Minshew or Aidan O'Connell as QB1 is less than ideal. There is also significant target competition with Davante Adams and Jakobi Meyers in the mix. Put it all together, and it's hard to envision a highly productive rookie year for Bowers. He's a fantastic dynasty football investment. For redraft purposes though, we may need to brace for a tough rookie year. Fantasy gamers should not expect a Sam LaPorta-esque rookie breakout as the Raiders' ecosystem is not as friendly as Detroit's was last year. Managers who select Bowers should invest in an additional tight end to hedge against him struggling as a rookie. Bowers is talented, but he's going to need a lot to go his way to be a difference-maker in 2024.

May 19 1:30pm ET

Las Vegas Raiders tight end Michael Mayer, who is heading into his second year in the NFL, is excited to work with rookie tight end Brock Bowers, who the Raiders selected in the first round this year. Bowers fell to the Raiders at No. 13 overall. "He's fast. He's got great hands. He can block. He can do it all. I feel like we can both do it all," Mayer said. Mayer wasn't all that involved in the Raiders' offense in his rookie campaign, catching just 27 passes for 304 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games played. Given Bowers' pedigree, Mayer figures to be the No. 2 TE in 2024, even in 12 personnel, which the Raiders ran just 14.2% of the time last year. Unless Bowers misses time due to an injury in his first year in the league, Mayer is going to have a hard time standing out for fantasy managers.

The Las Vegas Raiders signed first-round rookie tight end Brock Bowers to a fully guaranteed four-year deal on Thursday that is worth $18.1 million. He'll receive $10 million via a signing bonus and the standard fifth-year team option as a first-round pick. The Raiders held off on reaching for a quarterback in the first round in last month's draft and instead took one of the best players in the entire draft in Bowers at 13th overall. The 21-year-old was the highest-selected tight end since Kyle Pitts in 2021 and is athletic enough as a tight end to play pretty much anywhere on the field. Bowers set a school record at Georgia with 26 touchdowns in his time there and is the complete package. Even with Michael Mayer in town, Bowers should take over as the team's top pass-catching TE in his rookie year.

Dynasty | The Las Vegas Raiders selected tight end Brock Bowers with the 13th overall selection in the 2024 NFL Draft. Dynasty Analysis: Bowers slipped a little in the NFL Draft as teams maneuvered around to secure quarterbacks. In the end, he ended up being taken 13th overall to the Raiders. It's an odd fit as Las Vegas invested in Michael Mayer last season but Bowers should still have a solid chance to contribute early and often. Having a clearer path to being a true TE1 on his team would have likely solidified his spot as a top five rookie pick but this could drop him down just a smidge. Still, he has as much talent as anyone we've ever seen at the position and should have a floor that makes him very desirable in round one of rookie drafts.

With the No. 13 pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, the Raiders selected Georgia tight end Brock Bowers. There was talk the Jets would bring him to New York. However, the team bolstered their offensive line, so the 21-year-old will now head to Las Vegas. The Raiders are getting arguably the top tight end available, considering he amassed 2,538 yards and 26 touchdowns off 175 catches in 40 collegiate games. Bowers also added five touchdowns on the ground. Nonetheless, he'll have a chance to make an immediate impact as a Raider, although concerns at the quarterback position may limit his fantasy upside.

Georgia tight end Brock Bowers is the odds-on favorite to be taken by the New York Jets with the 10th overall pick in the NFL draft on Thursday night, according to ESPN draft experts. If that happens, it would be the first time in 16 seasons that quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been gifted a first-round pick at receiver or tight end. General manager Joe Douglas referred to Bowers as a "Swiss Army knife." The Jets are also interested in offensive tackles -- Notre Dame's Joe Alt, Oregon State's Taliese Fuaga and Washington's Troy Fautanu are thought to be their top preferences -- but they could take a receiver in the unlikely event one of the top three falls to 10th overall. If the Jets do take Bowers, he could have immediate fantasy value in his rookie year as long as Rodgers stays healthy.

Georgia tight end Brock Bowers is visiting with the Los Angeles Chargers on Wednesday. Bowers also has visited with the Chicago Bears and New York Jets this week, so he's making the rounds with interested club's with the NFL draft coming late next week. Even after missing his pro-day workout with a minor hamstring injury, the 21-year-old is projected to be a top-15 pick in this first round next week after dominating as a pass-catching tight end in college with the Bulldogs. Bowers had 2,538 receiving yards and 31 total touchdowns in three seasons, even after missing a big chunk of 2023 due to an ankle injury. It's probably unlikely the Bolts would take Bowers fifth overall, but if he did end up in LA, we could easily see him being fantasy relevant in Year 1 after the team lost pass-catchers Keenan Allen and Mike Williams in the offseason.

Georgia tight end Brock Bowers will be in Florham Park on Monday on an official visit with the New York Jets. The 6-foot-3, 243-pounder would give quarterback Aaron Rodgers yet another intriguing weapon in 2024 if the Jets were to select Bowers in the upcoming NFL draft. Bowers was a three-time first-team All American in his three years with the Bulldogs while leading Georgia in receiving all three years. He's easily regarded as the best tight end in this year's class and could come off the board as early as 10th overall in the first round to the Jets. In his three years at Georgia, Bowers caught 175 passes for 2,538 yards and 26 touchdowns. He could be fantasy relevant immediately in his first year in the NFL, but if he lands with the Jets, he'll have a lot of competition for targets.

The Athletic's Bruce Feldman predicts that the New York Jets will give quarterback Aaron Rodgers another receiving weapon in the upcoming NFL draft by taking Georgia tight end Brock Bowers with the 10th overall pick. Bowers is the best skill player that Georgia has produced since head coach Kirby Smart took over in 2016. He was the SEC Freshman of the Year in 2021 and a first-team All-American. The 21-year-old had 21 touchdowns over three seasons for the Bulldogs, and the 6-foot-3, 243-pounder is a terrific athlete. "What separates him is on the 50-50 balls, he's just such a competitor. He seems to have that 'clutch gene,'" one coach said. The Jets haven't had a fantasy relevant tight end in what feels like ages, but Bowers could change that quickly in 2024 if he goes to the Jets and Rodgers can stay healthy.

The Athletic's Zack Rosenblatt thinks that the New York Jets could be tempted to take Georgia tight end Brock Bowers with the No. 10 overall pick in the first round of this year's NFL draft, even if they remain high on Jeremy Ruckert. The Jets would probably only take a chance on Bowers in the first round if they address their offensive-line needs in free agency or through a trade. General manager Joe Douglas could also take a look at free-agent tight ends Hunter Henry, Jonnu Smith, Gerald Everett, Austin Hooper, Noah Fant, or Mike Gesicki. Bowers, who had 175 catches for 2,538 yards and 26 touchdowns in his time in college, could produce immediately for fantasy managers in 2024 in New York or elsewhere.

Georgia Bulldogs tight end Brock Bowers was undecided earlier in the week on whether or not he'd workout during the upcoming NFL Combine. The young tight end is still recovering from ankle surgery, so he'll sit this out. Possibly, Bowers does a workout during Georgia's Pro Day later in the month. Regardless, Bowers is the consensus TE1 of the class. Last season, Bowers finished with 56 receptions, 714 yards, and six touchdowns during his junior season at Georgia. The decision to sit out of the NFL Combine isn't going to hurt his draft position.

Georgia tight end Brock Bowers said at the NFL scouting combine on Thursday in Indianapolis that he hasn't decided if he will do any on-field workouts this week and said he won't decide until he's at the stadium on Friday. "Just a personal decision," Bowers said. Bowers is the consensus top tight end in the upcoming 2024 draft, but like most of the top quarterback prospects, he may hold off and work out at his school's pro day next month instead. The 21-year-old was extremely productive in his college career as a Bulldog, racking up 175 catches for 2,538 yards and 26 touchdowns while averaging 14.5 yards per catch. It remains to be seen if he can be as productive as the Lions' Sam LaPorta in his rookie year in the NFL in 2024, but there's no question Bowers has high-end TE1 potential.
