Jesus or “Bobo” Wilson as he is more commonly known as, is a slot receiver who has the ability to be an x-factor in the special teams game. The small 5’9″ 189 pound receiver remembered as Mr.Dependable at Florida State is back with his former quarterback. Whether his familiarity with Jameis Winston helps him or not is up in the air, but Wilson has the ability to make this roster.
The top four receivers in Mike Evans, Desean Jackson, Chris Godwin, and Adam Humphries are all locks for the roster, but after that it becomes hairy. That fifth and final roster spot at the receiving group may be up in the air for any player that has the ability in the return game. This is where Wilson sets himself apart.
The best way to stand out as a rookie during your first training camp is to play well on special teams. If he can show his stripes there, Wilson will get his shot. Kick returners have been at a premium in Tampa. DeSean Jackson returns kicks, but he isn’t getting any younger. A guy like Wilson could make a difference.
Now although to be the return man he will need more than just return skills, his route running in the clip above was spectacular. Any receiver who can return, and has the nickname that deals with his dependability is a plus in my book. Head coach Dirk Koetter has wanted speed in space, and Wilson provides just that.
