From the NFL Combine: Georgia Tight End Brock Bowers Talks Titans, and Nashville


INDIANAPOLIS – Georgia tight end Brock Bowers got a lot of attention Super Bowl week when naming the Titans as a team he'd like to play for in the NFL.

Bowers chuckled a bit when asked about it here at the NFL Combine, while indicating he met with the Titans – and plenty of other teams – here in Indianapolis.

"I met with the Titans, and it went good, I thought," Bowers said on Thursday. "It's a lot of moving around, and answering those core questions and watching film, and kind of just letting them know about my football knowledge."

So, why did he mention the Titans, who are slated to pick seventh in the NFL Draft, during an interview with Pro Football Talk (PFT Live) on Radio Row in Las Vegas?

"I just kind of mentioned it as a cool place to live," Bowers said with a chuckle. "Nashville, Tennessee, it would be cool."

The reality is Bowers has no say on where he might end up in April.

And, a lot of teams are interested in Bowers – he revealed on Thursday he's already met with over a dozen teams at the combine.

"It's hard to remember all the teams," Bowers said, "about 15 teams."

Bowers is regarded as one of the top prospects in this year's NFL Draft.

At Georgia, Bowers became the first two-time John Mackey Award winner. In 35 games with the Bulldogs, Bowers recorded the most receptions (175), receiving yards (2,538) and receiving touchdowns (26) by a tight end in SEC history.

"I feel like I (am) pretty good yards after catch, and just being able to make people miss," Bowers said. "(I can) turn good plays into great plays. ... I feel like I can do it all, and be a mismatch for defenses."

The Titans, of course, have plenty of needs heading into the upcoming NFL Draft, from offensive line to receiver to cornerback and more.

Plenty of teams are eyeing Bowers, and for good reason.

"He's easy to grade – he's one of the 10 best players in the draft," NFL Network draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah said. "Size-wise, speed-wise, he compares favorably to [George] Kittle. Plays with tenacity, especially with the ball in his hands. Everything he does — separating, climbing the ladder — is easy, and the run-after-catch is special."
