Williams chuckled before saying he was “just tired a little bit” because he had to “kick it the night before” as he celebrated.

Williams added that “it was a lifetime experience” to get drafted and that he’s ready to prove that the Lions were correct to trade up for him.

“I’m looking forward to it, for real,” Williams said. “Football, it’s what I do. They traded up for a reason, trusted me and my playmaking ability. We gonna put everything together after my rehab and we’re gonna show the world.”
