Lions Trade up with Division Rival Vikings, Select Jameson Williams

Written by Nate

Just after the New Orleans Saints traded up in the NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions did the same thing one pick later with division rival Minnesota Vikings.

Full trade terms:

They would use a majority of the picks above as the Lions selected Alabama wide receiver Jameson Williams.

Though he is coming off a torn ACL from the national championship game, Williams will bring his playmaking ability to a Detroit offense that desperately needs the great players that they can get.

He’ll join a young and growing receiving room that will include receivers Josh Reynolds, DJ Chark Jr, Tom Kennedy, Amon-Ra St. Brown and tight ends TJ Hockenson and Brock Wright.
