ATHENS - Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs will likley have another first round pick in 2024. Brock Bowers is one of the top five prospects for the 2024 NFL Draft ESPN's Mel Kiper said Saturday. 

Bowers joins USC QB Caleb Williams, Ohio State WR Marvin Harrison, North Carolina QB Drake May and Penn State offensive lineman Olu Fashanu on Kiper's list. The last time a tight end went in the top five was went Florida TE Kyle Pitts was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Only five times this century has a tight end gone in the first ten picks of the NFL Draft. 

The Napa native has been a force in Athens during his two-year stint at Georgia. He's racked up 119 catches for 1,824 yards with 20 touchdowns. Bowers has another 165 yards on 13 career rushes. He has scored four rushing touchdowns including a 75-yard score in 2022.

“He’s unique. But I think the position has evolved, right?” Georgia coach Kirby Smart said of Bowers in 2022. “He’s evolved with the position. As he was growing up and younger, he saw tight ends doing things in the NFL that the traditional tight end of the New York Giants, lining up in 13 personnel with three offensive lineman as tight ends, is no longer the tight end. It’s not what it was. He didn’t necessarily just play tight end in high school. If you’ve watched his high school tape, he was not really just a tight end. I think part of the sell in recruiting was, ‘You won’t be used just as a tight end.’
