Jake Bobo receives roster decision from Seattle Seahawks
Jake Bobo wasn’t drafted back in April. That won’t matter to him too much now.
Bobo attended UCLA last season after playing the rest of his college career at Duke. Bobo caught 57 passes for 817 yards receiving and 7 touchdowns in his only year with the Bruins.
A report from NFL insider Jordan Schultz indicated that Bobo made the Seattle Seahawks’ roster on Tuesday after joining the team as an undrafted free agent.

Bobo made a good impression on Geno Smith, who raved about the former UCLA wideout’s ability to get open. Bobo also impressed people with his blocking ability.
Bobo appeared in every preseason game for Seattle and had 125 yards receiving for 2 touchdowns.
Tuesday was the deadline for NFL teams to cut their roster numbers down to 53. It looks like Bobo will be included in that number for the Seahawks.
The Seahawks open the 2023 NFL season on Sept. 10 vs. the L.A. Rams.
