Training camp is a time for improvement and development no matter how many years you've played in the NFL. The mass amounts of information thrown at you are made easier the more training camps you've been a part of, sure, but things change year to year and no two years are quite the same.

Second-year wide receiver Bobo Wilson knows this and has put an emphasis on his own improvement going into his sophomore season. Wilson has made quite a few big plays so far throughout training camp and is solidly mixed into what is an extremely deep receiver rotation. He's another young player that also may be benefiting from quarterback Jameis Winston's reps with the third team. Winston was Wilson's quarterback in college during his first couple seasons at Florida State. The two picked up where they left off last season and have only strengthened their chemistry going into this one.

Coach Koetter called Wilson one of the most improved players so far in 2018. In practice on Monday, Wilson nabbed himself a touchdown pass from none other than his former college quarterback. With good pass protection, Winston dropped back and allowed Wilson to come back inside on a post to hit him downfield in the end zone. It was a thing of beauty and something that was definitely not a first for the pair.

Wilson has said that this year he's put a focus on learning all three receiver positions in order to better his chances of making the active roster. Being utilized on special teams would also help his case.

He'll be making the most of his opportunities as camp continues and should get some decent playing time during the Bucs' preseason games which open this Thursday in Miami. Keep an eye on Bobo in practice and see just how much he continues to improve.
