No. 1 - Seahawks wide receiver Jake Bobo

More Bobo, am I right? Bobo has gone from undrafted free agent to very likely WR3 if the season were to start tomorrow. We know the story by this point. Jake Bobo isn't fast, but he seems to do everything right so far. He has a wiggle when he runs and this has helped him find the openings in the defense. He leads the Seahawks in receiving yards this preseason.

Bobo does things besides catch the ball too. Head coach Pete Carroll raved about Bobo's blocking on a long catch and run by Jaxon Smith'Njigba against the Cowboys. Bobo was able to block two different Cowboys on the play and had excellent hand placement when blocking. And if you work for the Seattle Seahawks as a receiver, you are going to be asked to block so Bobo doing that so well is giving him extra points with the coaching staff.

Unfortunately on the long pass play to Smith-Njigba, he was injured. Smith-Njigba broke a bone in his wrist which required surgery. There is an excellent chance that he won't be ready for Week 1. This is why Jake Bobo could be quarterback Geno Smith's third option at wideout after DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.

Bobo has also stood out on special teams and he will likely get a lot of reps there. Once Smith-Njigba returns, Bobo's reps on offense will go down, of course, but that doesn't mean Bobo won't get some play on offense. He's has shown himself to be a good receiver and he could have a decently productive season.
