The Detroit Lions announced their undrafted free agents on Monday afternoon -- 11 of them in all -- and over the next few days, you'll get brief primers on all of them here as the team prepares for rookie minicamp this weekend.

Other profiles: OT Cornelius Lucas; QB James Franklin; FB Chad Abram; OL Alex Bullard; S Jerome Couplin; LB Justin Jackson; DB Gabe Lynn; TE Jacob Maxwell; OG D.J. Morrell; WR Andrew Peacock

Name: Mohammed Seisay

Position: Defensive back

School: Nebraska

ESPN pre-draft position rank: No. 54 cornerback

Career college stats: 16 tackles, one tackle for loss, one pass breakup.

Depth chart he’s looking at: Cornerback – Starters: Chris Houston, Darius Slay; Reserves – Rashean Mathis, Bill Bentley, Aaron Hester, Jonte Green, Chris Greenwood, Cassius Vaughn. Safety – Starters: Glover Quin, James Ihedigbo; Reserves – Don Carey, Isa Abdul-Quddus, DeJon Gomes

Chances of making it to camp: 40 percent.

Why him: Tough to say. He has good size measuring just over 6-feet, but he struggled to get on the field at Nebraska, playing mostly nickel and dime as depth. When he signed with the Cornhuskers out of Eastern Arizona Junior College, he was one of the top defensive back prospects in the country. He was also a starter at Memphis in 2010 at cornerback and had 23 tackles and two interceptions.

For Nebraska, he primarily played special teams and that would be any sort of contribution he would make with Detroit. Lions general manager Martin Mayhew lamented his team being unable to grab any potential primary special-teams guys in the draft because the mid-to-late rounds were focused on linemen for the most part. So that’s where Seisay could serve a role. But depth is there at the nickel and that he didn’t see the field much at Nebraska would definitely be a concern as he transitions to trying to make the NFL.
