Hendon Hooker finally got an extended taste of on-field action during the offseason program. While there were obvious struggles, the Detroit Lions are pleased with the quarterback’s demeanor heading into camp.

At the end of the NFL season, coaches sit down with players for their exit interview and give them areas they’d like that player to work on in the offseason.

When Jameson Williams met with Detroit Lions wide receivers coach Antwaan Randle El, the two talked about a number of things, but the one big message Randle El really wanted to drive home with Williams was adding strength to his frame.

“One of the biggest things was just his strength,” Randle El said. “In terms of route running and not getting pushed off the spot. You see that show up more and more, which is going to benefit us as an offense and you can see him taking it to another level.”

The speed is undeniable with Williams. He’s probably one of the five fastest players in the league. This spring we’ve also seen his ability to make plays within the entire route tree and all over the field, not just deep down the field utilizing that long speed. Williams made a couple tough catches in the middle of the field in traffic and contested on the sideline, which speaks to his gained strength.

“It helps him just getting in and out of routes,” Randle El said. “The strength that it’s built in his legs. You can see a difference.”

The former Michigan Wolverines defensive lineman faced criticisms last season due to his sack total not being higher.

Detroit’s new defensive line coach, Terrell Williams, indicated no player can dominate on their own, but he has seen tremendous growth from the 23-year-old throughout offseason workouts and practices.

“I don’t know who can do it on their own. I’ve coached some really good players and those players, if they’re honest, will admit that they need other people,” said Williams. “And so Hutch has been, he’s been unbelievable this offseason, and I think he’s made huge, huge strides from the time I arrived and to where we are now.”
