Behind-the-scenes footage shows how excited Detroit Lions were to draft Jameson Williams
The Detroit Lions traded up to No. 12 in the 2022 NFL Draft to select former Alabama WR Jameson Williams.
The Lions were excited to get Williams, despite his torn ACL suffered in the national title game against Georgia.
Now, we can see just how pumped up they were when Williams fell to them. Below, you can see behind-the-scenes footage of the moment the New Orleans Saints drafted Chris Olave at No. 11, meaning Williams was on the board for the Lions to take him at No. 12:

*Reaction to the Saints trading in front of them.
*Reaction to the Saints passing on Jameson Williams.
All of this is AWESOME behind-the-scenes.

Williams isn’t expected to be ready for training camp this month, but it is possible he could be ready for Week 1 of the 2022 NFL season this fall.
We’ll see if he continues to perform like a superstar like he did at Alabama.
