Tuesday was Day 2 of the 2024 NFL Combine, with Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell speaking to reporters in the morning and general manager Brad Holmes following in the afternoon.

Campbell offered a couple interesting things, about a now-former player who was eventually traded and the value of on-field drills in Indianapolis, during his session at the combine last year. This year's session was not quite a memorable, from a quote or read between the lines perspective, but Campbell did touch on quite a few topics in a session that went a little over the scheduled 15 minutes.

We covered what Campbell said about quarterback Hendon Hooker on Tuesday, essentially stating the obvious about the young quarterback being an unknown entity right now.

Let's dive into the other topics Campbell addressed on Tuesday, as we round up some Lions news from Day 2 of the 2024 NFL Combine.

Jameson Williams ready to emerge?

Thing seemed to come together as last season went on for Lions' wide receiver Jameson Williams, as he earned more snaps and occasionally made impactful plays. Looking toward his third season, with a torn ACL as a rookie and last year's gambling suspension behind him, those big plays will ideally be more than occasional.

Campbell sees more coming for Williams next season.

"He progressed and when he was able to come back off, when got him week four of the season after he had the suspension, all we asked of him was growth," Campbell said. "Just get better, just get a little bit better and just become one of the guys, somebody that we can rely on in this offense. Just do your job and that's exactly what he did. And you can see, by the end of the year, we really felt like he started to come into his own. He is gonna push to be a full-time starter now. And that's what we're looking for."
