Mohammed Seisay scouting report

A look at Detroit Lions undrafted free agent Mohammed Seisay and how he fits into the team's plans in 2014.

Eric Francis
CB Mohammed Seisay (Nebraska) - Undrafted free agent

The Detroit Lions spent a fourth-round draft pick on Utah State cornerback Nevin Lawson, and they added additional help at the position by signing undrafted free agent Mohammed Seisay, who played at both Memphis and Nebraska in college.


Height: 6-foot-1 | Weight: 202 pounds


2010 (at Memphis): 39 tackles, 2 INT, 5 PD
2012 (at Nebraska): 7 tackles
2013 (at Nebraska): 9 tackles, 1.0 TFL, 1 PD

Random fact

Seisay spent two seasons at Memphis before transferring to a junior college for the 2011 season. He then transferred to Nebraska for the final two years of his college career.

What the experts are saying

A big, athletic height-weight-speed prospect with intriguing length and short-area quickness to develop as a short-area press corner. Has a chance to compete with simplified assignments.

Detroit Lions Draft:

Big, well-built corner who was more physical than more heralded teammate Stanley Jean-Baptiste. Launched his draft profile with a truly astonishing pro day workout, where all of his numbers except the 40 would have been the best-in-show at the Combine.


Outlook for 2014

Barring injuries to numerous players at cornerback, it's tough to imagine a situation where Seisay will actually contend for a spot on the 53-man roster. Perhaps he could do enough to make a case for the practice squad, but that seems to be his best hope for 2014.
