According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free-Press, the Lions could end up trading up in next month’s draft in order to get former Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins.
If the Detroit Lions want to land the best receiver in the draft, Clemson’s Sammy Watkins, they’ll have to trade up to get him.
And the growing sense in league circles is that’s the all-in sort of move the Lions, a team desperate to reverse its downtrodden luck, could be willing to make.
It’s about time the Lions help out Calvin Johnson and pair him with another top of the line receiver. Not that he can’t dominate on his own, but it would help.
