Draft Scouting Report

Rating: 69.47 (Role player)

Pro Comparison: Ben Skowronek


Jake Bobo is a tall, sleek, big slot with quality burst and athleticism but not freaky in either regard. He was mostly a possession type in college who flashed occasional seam-stretching vertical routes. He's a natural-hands catcher with a large catch radius but struggled with making grabs whenever there was contact. He's not a sudden, change-of-direction type but does have some impressive YAC flashes because of his burst and vision once the ball is in his hands. His speed is lacking, and he won't be a major separator at the next level. Nothing standout about his game. A team that wants a tall presence inside with some athletic upside could be interested in him later in the draft. Older prospect, too, as he'll be 25 when the season starts.


  • Made some ridiculous grabs away from his frame, almost like a tight end
  • Surprising YAC glimpses
  • Serious size


  • Lack of straight-line speed instantly pops on film
  • Had consistency problems catching the football through contact or in tight spaces
  • Will be 25 during his rookie season

  • Jake Bobo: Heading to Seattle

    Bobo is expected to sign with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    After four years at Duke, Bobo transferred to UCLA for his senior year, and he had 57 receptions for 817 yards and seven touchdowns. He was previously named third-team All-ACC at Duke in 2021 and was an All-Pac-12 Honorable mention with UCLA in 2022 as he led the team in catches, receiving yards and touchdowns. Bobo was able to utilize his 6-foot-4 size advantage at the college level, but it will not be as profound at the NFL level, and he will have to improve on his speed and cuts if he wants to stick on a team roster. He could be a potential convert to tight end if he, with the direction of the Seahawks' staff, is committed to adding weight during his training and development.
