Jermaine Kearse has gone from undrafted longshot to near lock in making Seattle's roster

Jermaine Kearse sat quietly at the podium for 15 minutes while to his left sat Kobe Bryant and Richard Sherman, and on his right, was Grammy winning hip-hop artist Macklemore all answering questions.

Not once was Kearse asked a question during his appearance at the recent charity event, even if the Seattle Seahawks wide receiver was the only one to have scored a touchdown in the Super Bowl.

Once an undrafted free agent and seeming longshot to make the Seahawks roster, Kearse might now fall into the category of being a lock when the final 53-man roster is submitted at the end of the preseason. It's a rise from being overlooked coming out of college to becoming established in the NFL that has become a familiar story for the Seahawks.
