The 2024 NFL draft is coming up and the Georgia Bulldogs have some significant pieces that are eligible for the draft. One of the top players in the nation is tight end Brock Bowers and he has officially made his decision on whether he is returning to the program for his senior year or if he is entering the 2024 NFL draft.
He took to social media to announce that he is foregoing his senior year of eligibility and declaring for the 2024 NFL draft.

This does not necessarily come as a surprise as Brock Bowers is the top tight end prospect and is expected to be a top-10 pick in April. He has been a force as the top receiving option for the Georgia Bulldogs throughout his career as this season Brock Bowers finished with 56 receptions for 714 yards (12.8 yards per catch) with six touchdown receptions as well as six carries for 28 yards (4.7 yards per rush) with a rushing touchdown.
He missed a month of action in mid-October as he suffered a high ankle sprain but elected to get surgery to have a faster recovery and return. Bowers did not play in the Orange Bowl against the Florida State Seminoles but still has made his presence known.
What team would be the best fit for Brock Bowers in the 2024 NFL Draft?
Now that we have an official decision on one of the top players in the draft pool, finding the best landing spot for him is the next step. While the spots are not locked in right now for the draft order at the top, there are a few teams that could be in the market for an elite tight end like him.
One team would be the Arizona Cardinals. They had veteran Zach Ertz but released him earlier this season. They are currently slated to have the fourth pick they can give quarterback Kyler Murray an elite weapon while still having the 17th-overall selection entering Week 18 as they own the Houston Texans first-round pick.
Another team that makes sense would be the Los Angeles Chargers. With quarterback Justin Herbert coming back from his season-ending thumb injury and wanting to make a splash, this could be that move. Remember that they likely are going to be without running back Austin Ekeler so having another pass-catching option will be critical as they replace his production.
