Williams was selected by the Detroit Lions in the first round (12th overall) of the 2022 NFL Draft. The pick was acquired with a second round pick (used for Josh Paschal) via a trade with the Minnesota Vikings for Detroit's first, second, and third round picks. He was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list to start the season on August 23, 2022, due to the torn ACL suffered in college.

Williams returned to practice on November 21, 2022, and was activated on December 3, prior to Week 13. He made his debut against the Jacksonville Jaguars, logging zero catches on one target in the Lions 40–14 victory. The next week, his first career reception was a 41-yard receiving touchdown, contributing to a 34–23 victory over the same Minnesota Vikings team who traded his pick away. In Week 17, he had a 40-yard rush in a 41–10 victory over the Chicago Bears.

On April 21, 2023, Williams was suspended 6 games for violating the league’s gambling policy after betting on college football games at the Lions' facility.
