  • Lions' Jack Campbell: Notches first career sack

    Campbell tallied six tackles (three solo), including a sack, against the Falcons in a Week 3 win Sunday. Campbell saw his most playing time as a pro, logging 57 percent of Detroit's defensive snaps in the contest. He finished with six total tackles for the second straight game and picked up his first NFL sack when he brought down Desmond Ridder on the final play of the first half. The No. 18 pick in this year's draft appears to already be growing into a significant role in the Lions' defensive scheme.

  • Lions' Jack Campbell: Six tackles against Seattle

    Campbell recorded six tackles during Sunday's 37-31 loss to Seattle. Campbell came off the bench as Alex Anzalone, Derrick Barnes and James Houston (ankle) started at linebacker. He did well production-wise despite playing just a third of the defensive snaps, as five of his tackles came on defense opposed to special teams, where he has logged over half of the snaps in each game so far. There was a stretch in the third quarter when Campbell was involved on three consecutive tackles, and he later made back-to-back plays in the fourth quarter on short gains to Seattle's top two draft picks, Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Zach Charbonnet. With Houston set to miss multiple weeks due to a fractured ankle, Campbell could be in store for a boost in playing time sooner than later.

  • Lions' Jack Campbell: Surprise pick at 18th for Detroit

    The Lions selected Campbell in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 18th overall. Campbell is a big (6-foot-5, 249 pounds) linebacker with excellent testing athleticism (4.65-second 40, 128-inch broad jump, 6.74-second three-cone drill), and he was a three-down player in a suffocating Iowa defense. The Hawkeyes' run defenses are always good, though, and Campbell failed to produce the way you would expect of someone with his athleticism. More specifically, Campbell was allergic to the backfield, making just 5.5 tackles for loss out of 128 total tackles last year. Six Iowa defenders logged more tackles for loss than Campbell did in 2023. By selecting Campbell this high the Lions are almost compelled to give him a three-down role as a rookie, and with that Campbell would be on the IDP radar in most formats.
