Brock Bowers NFL Draft best bets

Brock Bowers draft position under 12.5 (-172)

The juice is rather sizable, but I still think the value is there on Bowers being off the board no later than #12. He is simply too good of a football players to slide any farther. Yes, he is a tight end and the premium on that position is a bit watered down these days. Of course, Bowers might as well be a receiver and there are 3 WRs (Marvin Harrison Jr., Malik Nabers and Rome Odunze) expected to be top-1o picks. So it’s not like a fourth pass-catcher can’t selected in the top 10 — or at the very least in the top 12.

Bowers racked up 882 yards and 13 touchdowns as a freshman, 942 yards and 7 TDs in year 2 and 714 yards to go along with 6 scores this past season despite missing multiple games due to an ankle injury. Needless to say, his productivity was incredible. Bowers is a very good route runner and he is amazing after the catch. He is quite simply a playmaker — to a greater extent than basically any other tight end. At team like the New York Jets at #10, for example, could really use such a playmaker.

In addition to Under 12.5, I also like Bowers going in the top 10 at +135 — which is available at FanDuel Sportsbook
