Undrafted rookie wide receiver Jake Bobo has earned a spot on the Seattle Seahawks final roster, despite running a slow 4.99 timing in the 40-yard dash at his pro day.

The 6’5, 215-pound receiver from UCLA managed to captivate fans during the preseason, solidifying his potential as a valuable asset to the Seahawks offense.

Bobo’s standout performances included seven receptions totaling 125 yards and two touchdowns across three preseason games.

His ability to consistently find openings in the defense and make plays has earned him a spot on the roster, much to the delight of Seahawks fans.

While his pro day performance might have raised some eyebrows, Bobo’s college career told a different story. Playing for both Duke and UCLA, he racked up an impressive 183 receptions for 2,258 yards and notched 10 touchdowns.

The Seahawks’ willingness to look beyond the athletic numbers and focus on a player’s overall potential appears to have paid off with Jake Bobo.
