The Seahawks have hit pretty decently on their unrestricted free agents in the John Schneider and Pete Carroll era. Last season, players like QB Josh Portis, S Jeron Johnson, WR Ricardo Lockette, CB Ron Parker, and of course WR Doug Baldwin all played on the 53-man roster at one point or another during the year. So who has the best chance of making an impact this season?
WR – Jermaine Kearse, Washington
Kearse was a three-year starter for the Huskies, proving to be the favorite receiver of both current Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker and current Huskies starting QB Keith Price. Kearse had a down year in 2011, with only 47 catches for 699 yards and 7 TDs. He did have a 1,000-yard year in 2010 though (63-1005-12), proving he can be a go-to receiver. With his record of production, good size (6’2”, 208 lbs) and a much faster 40-yard dash time during his Pro Day compared to the Combine (4.44 vs. 4.58), Kearse seems like the most likely candidate to make the squad.
