The Baby Face Assassin
Which running backs should you reach for in your draft as an RB2 and which running backs should you avoid?
A player-by-player look at the 2015 Seattle Seahawks 75-man roster. The Seahawks must trim their roster to 53 players by 1 p.m. PT on Saturday, Sept. 5.
Photos from the Seahawks' 16-15 win over the San Diego Chargers.
When Jermaine Kearse was shown the photo of him as a youth football player, the first thing the Seahawks’ big-play wide receiver did was smile.
Then he shook his head. Then he offered, “Man, that was long time ago. And I had a baby face.”
That was Kearse in the fourth, or maybe fifth, grade while playing for the Lakewood Lumberjacks: The Baby Face Assassin.
And, he wasn’t a receiver in those days. “I started out as a quarterback,” he said. “Those were fun times. I scored like 20 touchdowns that season, rushing. I only had one pass attempt.”
Now, in his second season with the Seahawks, Kearse is on the other end of this quarterback-receiver thing.
