Brock Bowers meets with Chargers, Jim Harbaugh: ‘It was cool to see him again, talk to him’

The Chargers have been linked to Georgia tight end Brock Bowers throughout the pre-draft process. The two parties finally met, as Bowers was interviewed by them on Wednesday at the NFL Scouting Combine.

“I met with the Chargers the other night, Bowers said, per Sports Illustrated’s Gilbert Manzano. Me and Coach Harbaugh talked about when we played them [Michigan] in 2021 when he was recruiting him. It was cool to see him again and talk to him.”

Bowers was recruited by various colleges, including by Harbaugh’s Wolverines when he graduated from Napa High School.

Bowers went on to have a polished career for the Bulldogs, finishing with 175 catches for 2,538 yards and 26 touchdowns and becoming the first two-time John Mackey Award winner.

With Gerald Everett set to be a free agent, the Bolts will be in the market for a bonafide starting tight end for offensive coordinator Greg Roman, who covets players at the position in his system.

Bowers is a mismatch for any defender in the passing game and he is a solid run blocker.

Bowers should be available when the Chargers are on the clock with the No. 5 overall selection, but he also might also if they were to trade back a few spots.
