Welcome to the NFL, Aidan Hutchinson! The celebrated Detroit Lions rookie made his presence known right away in the team's preseason opener against the Atlanta Falcons.

After making a tackle down the field on Falcons QB Marcus Mariota on a scramble on the first play of Atlanta's first possession, Hutchinson showed on the very next snap that he's already capable of making big plays up the field too.

Hutchinson swam under veteran left tackle Jake Matthews and quickly smacked Falcons RB Qadree Ollison two yards behind the line of scrimmage. This is a perfect example of why the Lions are so excited about the No. 2 overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft and why he can make a big impact right away.

Later in the drive, Hutchinson drew a holding penalty on the Falcons right guard, too.
