Breaking: Las Vegas Raiders TE Brock Bowers’ Woman Gives Birth To Triplets, Head Coach Comments.

  • Las Vegas Raiders TE Brock Bowers’ Woman Gives Birth To Triplets, Head Coach Comments.

When the former Oakland Raiders would host their training camp close by, Brock Bowers was a middle school student in Napa, California.

He would visit to observe practices, and on one occasion he even obtained an autograph from quarterback Derek Carr. Now, Bowers is a member of the Las Vegas Raiders, who selected the tight end from Georgia with the 13th choice in the first round of the NFL draft on Thursday. “It’s complete circle now,” Bowers remarked from Napa.


The Raiders have selected a tight end high for the second straight year. Last year, Las Vegas moved up to select Michael Mayer of Notre Dame with the 35th overall pick in the second round. During the previous season, Mayer caught 27 catches for 304 yards and two scores. Tom Telesco, general manager of the Raiders, stated, “We love Michael Mayer.” “He plays the game pretty well. This year, he plans to make even another significant leap. However, we have an opportunity to enhance the offensive scheme by incorporating a tight end or a hybrid receiver. More playmakers are needed on that side of the ball.

After racking up 56 receptions for 714 yards and six touchdowns, Bowers became the first player to earn the John Mackey Award as the greatest tight end in the country for two straight seasons.

Las Vegas wasn’t one of his anticipated destinations, since he claimed to have had little communication with the Raiders, primarily through the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis and “a little over the phone.” “I was truly taken aback,” Bowers exclaimed. “I had no idea what was going on. I was excited when the caller said, “Las Vegas.” Bowers was used all over the field by Georgia, even being lined up in the slot or in the backfield. Moving about the field is enjoyable, in Bowers’ opinion. “I hope it continues, but I’ll do whatever they ask of me, to the best of my abilities.”

Telesco said he also liked Bowers’ ability to block.

“When you play at Georgia, you have to be able to block, and in the SEC, he’s playing against some real defenders,” Telesco said.
