CINCINNATI — Former Georgia tight end Brock Bowers worked out privately for teams this week ahead of the 2024 NFL Draft.

The star tight end not only solidified his status as a future first round pick, but he might've secured his spot in the top half of the 2024 NFL Draft.

Bowers reportedly weighed in at 241 pounds and looked explosive in field drills. There are conflicting reports about him doing any athletic testing.

It was a closed workout. Some have said he only did on field drills. Meanwhile, Dawgnation.com is reporting that Bowers ran a 4.53 40-yard dash.

If he did run that fast, it would give him the second fastest 40-yard dash among tight ends in this year's draft class. Only Devin Culp (4.47) was faster.

That would also be faster than Travis Kelce (4.61), Rob Gronkowski (4.68) and Sam LaPorta (4.59). It's only .01 away from what George Kittle ran (4.52) during the pre-draft process.

If the report is true, then Bowers should be a top 10 pick. The New York Jets are considered the favorites to take the Georgia product—at least in NFL circles.

The Colts are another team that could target Bowers in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft.
