Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, Aug. 26 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Richard Sherman, Tyler Lockett Earn All-Pro Projection Mentions
NFL Media Analyst Elliot Harrison at NFL.com has put together projections for the 2015 All-Pro team and two Seahawks earn mention on his list. Harrison included 11 players on offense, 12 players on defense - to account for different defensive schemes, as well as a kicker, punter, and returner.
Harrison lists three-time first-team All-Pro Richard Sherman at cornerback, and in somewhat of a surprise move adds rookie wide receiver Tyler Lockett to his list as a return specialist. Here's what Harrison had to say about each player:
Richard Sherman: How do you pick someone other than Revis or Sherman? Chris Harris Jr. made my All-Underrated Team, yet it can be pointed out that Aqib Talib always faces the WR1s. Patrick Peterson is not in Sherman's class. And if the NFC Championship Game was any indication, you still can't pick on Sherm.
Tyler Lockett: It's always fun to place a rookie somewhere on the All-Pro squad. Last year, Zack Martin made the official team. How about this Seahawks true freshman at returner? Lockett could be key for an earthbound Seattle offense, which will benefit from the brand of explosion this guy has displayed in the preseason.
Jermaine Kearse Joins 'The Daily Stretch'
Seahawks wide receiver Jermaine Kearse joined Matt 'Stretch' Johnson on Seahawks.com's The Daily Stretch podcast yesterday. The audio is embedded for you above, as Kearse talks about how he enjoyed his offseason and how he's feeling heading into the new year.
"Feeling good," said Kearse, the Lakewood, Wash. native and former University of Washington Husky standout who's entering his fourth season with the Seahawks. "Getting a lot of things corrected and just trying to go out there and just do well in practice and just execute to the best we can. It's just about staying on schedule, keep getting in a rhythm, especially with the offense, and just pushing that tempo and getting in a rhythm. I think we're really good when we find that rhythm and stay in it."
