BROCK BOWERS SCOUTING REPORT
- Bowers’ blend of speed and size makes him an absolute nightmare to cover and tackle after the catch
- His YAC is incredible, with shades of Rob Gronkowski and George Kittle with the ball in his hands — he can run through and around defenders with ease
- All-time best PFF grade by a TE in receiving grade, receiving yards, touchdowns, yards after contact, and missed tackles forced on receptions
- Better blocker than given credit
- Non-stop motor with and without the football
- Bowers can truly take any reception or carry to the house
- Highly decorated player as a 3X All-American and 2X Mackey Award winner
- Bowers may check in “undersized” at the combine and could be below his listed size (6-4, 240 lb)
- Can improve the full route tree and will have to prove it against better safeties and linebackers in the NFL
- Although his blocking is better than advertised, it’ll be interesting to see if his expected weight will hurt him as an in-line blocker — thus limiting where he can lineup on all three downs
BROCK BOWERS PRODUCTION PROFILE
Brock Bowers etched his mark in college football history by becoming the first tight end to win the prestigious John Mackey Award twice. This remarkable achievement highlights his exceptional skill, consistency, and dominance on the field. Bowers’ ability to stand out among his peers earned him recognition as the top tight end in college football and arguably the best tight end prospect of all time.
Not only was Bowers a two-time Mackey Award winner, but he was named a back-to-back-to-back All-American, won two national titles, and took home a grocery list of All-American awards throughout his career.
Bowers’ prowess extended beyond mere accolades, as evidenced by his dominance in advanced statistical metrics. In short, he re-wrote the tight end record book at Pro Football Focus. He led all Power Five tight ends in various categories since 2014, including PFF receiving grade, receiving yards, touchdowns, yards after contact, and missed tackles forced on receptions.
As a true freshman, he emerged quickly on a Georgia team that was loaded with talent. He led the team with 56 receptions for 882 yards and 13 touchdowns. He followed that up with 63 receptions for 942 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. Bowers then capped his career with 714 yards and six touchdowns on 56 catches in only ten games.
Not only can Bowers catch the football, but the Bulldogs utilized him as a ball carrier, racking up 193 yards and five touchdowns on 19 carries. We haven’t seen a tight end carry the ball like this since [redated] Hernandez.
From his tape to his statistical superiority, his impact on the game cemented his legacy as arguably one of the best college football tight ends ever and a future dominant fixture on Sundays.

Overall, Brock Bowers is a generational talent at the tight end position.
Bowers, the standout tight end from Georgia, possesses a rare combination of speed and size, rendering him a formidable challenge for any defense. His ability to seamlessly transition from catching to running with the ball echoes the likes of Gronk, showcasing his exceptional YAC prowess. Bowers’ YAC ability and relentless motor enable him to evade defenders effortlessly and turn routine receptions into game-changing plays.
Despite his impressive receiving skills, Bowers is an advanced stats darling. He boasts the all-time best PFF grade for a tight end in various categories, including receiving grade, receiving yards, touchdowns, yards after contact, and missed tackles forced on receptions. Additionally, Bowers’ underrated blocking abilities further solidify his value on the field, demonstrating his versatility as a complete tight end.
While Bowers has garnered numerous accolades throughout his collegiate career, including three All-American selections and two John Mackey Awards, questions linger regarding his size and potential limitations at the NFL level. Despite him potentially being undersized, his elite skill set and motor will allow him to overcome those obstacles.
Don’t overthink Bowers as a prospect. He truly has it all, and what’s even scarier is that some of his potential is untapped — which is scary for a player who walked into Athens, Georgia, as a true freshman and dominated like no one else has before.
