2015 Detroit Lions undrafted free agents

The Lions signed 12 undrafted free agents after Saturday's draft. Here's a closer look at each player.

OG Al Bond: The 6-foot-4, 303-pound Memphis product started in 42 of 47 games in his career, playing 2,912 snaps. He ran a 5.57-second 40-yard dash and put up 22 reps on the bench press at the NFL combine.

QB Anthony Boone: He was first-round pick Laken Tomlinson's quarterback at Duke. Intelligence-wise, he could be a competent backup in the league, but his size will be an issue for most teams. He was the No. 10 quarterback in Scout's Inc's ratings. A two-year starter at Duke, he completed 255 of 453 passes for 2,700 yards, 19 touchdowns and eight interceptions his senior season.

K/P Kyle Brindza: The Canton, Michigan, native made 57 of 81 field goals in his career (70.4 percent) at Notre Dame and also hit 94 punts for 3,884 yards, a 41.3-yard average. With Matt Prater and Sam Martin in place as the team's kicker and punter, he's likely a camp leg.

S Isaiah Johnson: The 6-foot-2 safety had 275 career tackles, six interceptions, 13.5 tackles for loss and three sacks during his time at Georgia Tech. He started his final three years with the Yellow Jackets. He is one guy to watch.

WR Vernon Johnson: The 6-foot-1, 190-pound receiver from Texas A&M-Commerce had 147 catches for 2,608 yards and 25 touchdowns in two seasons at the school. He was also used as a kick returner, averaging 27.6 yards per return.

WR Desmond Lawrence: The 5-foot-9 dynamo finished seventh in the 100 meters at the 2014 NCAA track championships. He transferred to North Carolina A&T from East Carolina and had 42 catches for 386 yards and two touchdowns last season.

TE Casey Pierce: The 6-foot-4 tight end from Kent State led his team in receptions (60), yards (641) and touchdowns (six) last season. That almost doubled his production from his junior season.

LB Kevin Snyder: A two-year starter at linebacker for Rutgers, he had 229 career tackles, 18.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks. According to a story at mycentraljersey.com, he also has some long-snapping ability, so he could push Jordan Thompson for a spot on the practice squad there.

S Brian Suite: The Utah State product started 40 of 41 career games, making 226 tackles, breaking up 21 passes and intercepting eight passes. The 6-foot-3 safety graduated from Punahou (Hawaii) High School, the same school that produced Manti Te'o, Michelle Wie, actress Kelly Preston and President Barack Obama.

RB Rasheed Williams: The 6-foot-1, 215-pounder from Alfred State (New York) rushed 197 times for 1,017 yards and 10 touchdowns last season.

OL Torrian Wilson: The 6-foot-3, 305-pound lineman was a three-year starter at left tackle for UCF, blocking for future first-round quarterback Blake Bortles. He started 37 games over his final three seasons at the position. While he played tackle in college, he is more likely a guard in the NFL.

RB Zach Zenner: The 5-foot-11, 223-pound Zenner rushed for three straight 2,000-yard seasons at South Dakota State. He ran a 4.6-second 40-yard dash and had a 41-inch vertical jump at the NFL scouting combine. He had well over 1,000 carries in his college career, which could be a concern for teams when it comes to his long-term potential. He was good against top competition, though, as he gained 499 yards in four games against FBS opponents in four seasons, including 202 yards against Nebraska in 2013. I had him making the squad in my initial 53-man roster projection for the Detroit offense that ran earlier this week.
