Brock Bowers should require a top 3 pick

In Kiper's mock, Georgia tight end Brock Bowers is the No. 5 overall pick to the Los Angeles Chargers, a place that would be a great fit with Justin Herbert there at quarterback. The higher he goes in the actual draft, the higher he will go in your dynasty rookie draft.

With three QBs being taken with the first three picks, those three QBs could also go in the first three picks in superflex leagues. But players who may already have a decent QB situation are going to look at talents such as Marvin Harrison Jr. and Bowers as incredibly good options.

In 1QB leagues, Harrison Jr. and Bowers are top three picks.

The case for Harrison is easy to make and all you have to look at is the Hall-of-Fame career his father had for proof of that. But Bowers is the best tight end prospect to come around in a long time.

If you thought Sam LaPorta had a good rookie season with the Detroit Lions this year, just wait until you see what Bowers could be capable of.

In three seasons with the Bulldogs, Bowers caught 175 passes for 2,538 yards and 26 touchdowns. He has the capability to be the best tight end in the entire NFL within three years so he is a player you must take a strong look at in your rookie draft if you are selecting in the top 3.
