Monday was an eventful and important day for the NY Jets organization. Not only did the team introduce their new uniforms and begin their 2024 offseason program, but they also hosted one of the top prospects in the 2024 NFL Draft on an official visit.

Georgia tight end Brock Bowers, the consensus top pick for the Jets in mock drafts at the moment, is visiting with the Jets on a very important day in their offseason schedule.

The Jets' uniform release has fans buzzing with excitement ahead of the draft, but more importantly, many of the team's players are back in the building today for the start of the offseason program.

Yes, that includes quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was seen walking into the team's facilities at Florham Park on the Jets' official social media accounts. Rodgers and Bowers might have the opportunity to interact.

Bowers is widely seen as a potential top-10 player in this year's draft class, and many believe the Jets could be the favorites to draft him. The 21-year-old was named a first-team All-American in all three of his collegiate seasons and is one of the best tight end prospects to enter the NFL in years.

At 6-foot-3, 243 pounds, Bowers is an exceptional athlete, smooth route runner, and mismatch nightmare for opposing defenses. He's a tight end in name only — Bowers is simply an offensive playmaker.

It's hardly a surprise that the Jets are meeting with him prior to the draft, but it is notable that his visit was scheduled for the same day that Rodgers and the rest of the team returned to Florham Park.

Was this intentional? Probably not, but there might be an opportunity for Rodgers to speak with his potential future teammate. After all, Rodgers has quite a bit of say in the Jets' roster decisions. This pre-draft meeting could have serious implications for the future of the organization.

Florida State quarterback Jordan Travis is also visiting the Jets on Monday, per reports. Travis is a logical mid-round quarterback target for the Jets, and he should also have the opportunity to speak with Rodgers. That could only serve to help his case.

It's an exciting time for the Jets organization entering the 2024 NFL Draft. The team has a new look — both literally and figuratively — and has genuine Super Bowl aspirations. Perhaps Bowers can help them achieve their goals.
