The Falcons get the player they would have likely taken with the eighth pick and add a second round selection by trading down with the Arizona Cardinals. The SEC Defensive Player of the Year is a feared pass rusher who shows outstanding burst off the ball.

Sean Payton has a long history of featuring tight ends in his offense like he did with Jimmy Graham in New Orleans. With the selection of Bowers, he gets a receiver who can be the focal point of his offense and make life easier for quarterback Jarrett Stidham.

"Brock Bowers impacts the game every time he’s on the field – whether it’s third down, whether it’s red zone. This guy is an impact player. He’s fast, he’s a matchup nightmare and he plays a position that is highly valuable. This is one of the best college tight ends that I’ve seen in a long time. He’s 6’4, 240 pounds. He’s physical, he’s fast, he catches the ball beautifully and smooth. He plays a position that I value very much. Why? Because that’s who wins championships – teams that have players like Brock Bowers"

Raider head coach Antonio Pierce has stated he will stick to the Raider's way when it comes to building Las Vegas’s roster. What player better emphasizes this than quarterback Michael Penix Jr. who excels at throwing the deep ball which was always a staple of the team under Al Davis.

. EDGE, UCLA. . Laiatu Latu. Laiatu Latu. Laiatu Latu. player. . 14. 57

The Chicago Bears added one of the key players on their defense when they traded for Montez Sweat during the season. Now with their second first-round pick, they find someone to play on the opposite side of him. Latu is the most polished pass rusher in the 2024 NFL Draft, and if he stays healthy he could routinely post double-digit sacks seasons in the NFL.

. Quinyon Mitchell. 15. 46. . . player. Quinyon Mitchell. Quinyon Mitchell. CB, Toledo

The Colts have a Pro Bowl corner in Kenny Moore II, but little else at this position. Quinyon Mitchell is a terrific athlete, who proved he can play against the top competition at this year’s Senior Bowl.
