Former Colorado Buffaloes wide receiver Bryce Bobo has found an opportunity in the NFL, signing with the Denver Broncos on Friday.
The 6-foot-2, 205 pound Buffaloes standout was projected as a late round pick in the NFL Draft following a solid performance in January’s East-West Shrine Game. However, Bobo went undrafted and signed with the Seattle Seahawks as a rookie free agent. After mini-camp, Bobo was cut by Seattle and had since received no attention from other teams around the league. That is until the injury of Kenny Bell opened up a spot on the Broncos’ depth chart. It’s somewhat ironic that Bobo would replace Bell, a Boulder native and Fairview graduate who played at Nebraska.
Bobo finished his career at Colorado playing in a total of 50 games with 150 receptions, 1,638 yards receiving and ten touchdowns. He’s reunited with his fellow CU teammate Phillip Lindsay, who’s regarded as one of the players to watch this preseason and could snag a spot on the Broncos final 53-man roster on Sept. 1.

Bobo is now the fifth rookie receiver on the roster, joining two recent Broncos’ draft picks SMU’s Courtland Sutton and Penn State’s DaeSean Hamilton. It’s unclear how likely Bobo is to remain with Denver, but he should at least get a shot to prove himself during preseason.
