Pick Analysis. Wide receiver. Scouting Report. Louisville. Tutu Atwell. 113. player. 50

Selecting Atwell in Round 4 isn’t going to add the toughness Campbell wants to instill in his Lions’ squad, but he can give his offensive some explosion it sorely lacks. His lack of size will limit him to being a slot receiver at the next level, but he’s got the elite speed required to thrive on the inside.

Goff needs a high-quality weapon in the slot to be successful. Atwell can take the pressure off his quarterback by turning short throws into potential big gains on the perimeter. Atwell also has an exciting ability to take advantage of safeties who try to cover him on deep routes. That could be a huge weapon for Goff on play-action.

Williams lined up predominantly on the edge during his Louisana Tech career, but his NFL future lies on the inside. If he moves to defensive tackle he suddenly becomes a lineman with a chance to grow into an above-average pass rusher.

Williams may need a lot of coaching to improve his run defense, but at worst, he can help the Lions right away as a situational pass rusher on the inside. That’s an important spot in Campbell’s defense. Williams could fill it effectively. That’s a terrific potential value in Round 5 for Detroit.
