What Happened to Brock Bowers? Star Bulldogs TE Misses Georgia Pro Day

Georgia tight end Brock Bowers will not work out at the Georgia Pro Day. When will NFL teams see the potential first-round pick in action?

Brock Bowers enters the 2024 NFL Draft as the top tight end and one of the top prospects. NFL teams hoped to get at least one workout from him before the annual selection event to confirm his status as a first-round pick.

When will NFL teams see Bowers work out for them?

Brock Bowers Won’t Be in Action at Georgia Pro Day

Georgia tight end Bowers suffered a high ankle sprain during the 2023 college football campaign that cost him a month of playing time. Although he finished the regular season and played in the SEC Championship Game, Bowers opted out of the Bulldogs’ bowl game to heal the injury and prepare for the NFL.

Two weeks ago, the 2024 NFL Combine took place in Indianapolis, and Bowers did not participate in any of the drills. The Georgia tight end wanted to heal the ankle as much as possible, with the intention of participating at Georgia’s Pro Day.

Georgia hosts their pro day today, Wednesday, March 13, with multiple draft-eligible Bulldogs taking to the field to showcase their athleticism in testing events and workout in positional drills.

However, Bowers — alongside potential first-round offensive tackle Amarius Mims — will not participate at the Georgia Pro Day. The ankle appears to not be 100% yet, requiring additional time for it to heal.

So, when are NFL teams going to see Bowers work out?

ESPN’s Jordan Reid reported that Bowers will hold a separate workout for NFL teams on April 10. This would be just a few weeks before the 2024 NFL Draft begins, giving scouts a chance to evaluate Bowers and give their final grades.

Many have compared Bowers to George Kittle, as he is an elite receiver for a tight end who can also block well. The injury is starting to become a concern for scouts that could result in him dropping out of the top 10, or worse, the first round.

The tape shows that Bowers is one of the best players in the draft and can become a star in the NFL like Kittle and Travis Kelce. How he recovers from the injury will be the true test of where he enters in his rookie season. Bowers’ workout on April 10 and how he runs on that ankle will determine his fate in the NFL Draft.
