This comes as no surprise, but T.J. Hockenson is fitting in just nicely with the Detroit Lions.
The former Iowa star was arguably one of the most NFL-ready players in the entire 2019 NFL Draft. A complete tight end that is capable of clearing a running lane or running a sharp route, Hockenson went over 100 receiving yards in his regular-season debut. He also scored in Week 1.
As quarterback Matt Stafford left the pocket to extend this play, Hockenson drifted to the center of the end zone to make a target. Stafford lofted it up, and Hockenson came down with the score surrounded by Arizona defenders.
Needless to say, Hockenson looks like he’ll be a key piece for the Lions moving forward:
