The Lions have already invested a fortune in wide receiver Calvin Johnson, and given No. 2 receiver Golden Tate a significant contract as well. But they’re not necessarily done expending resources at the receiver position.
Sammy Watkins, widely regarded as the best receiver in this year’s draft class, has visited Detroit, and there’s talk that the Lions are interested in trading up in the draft to acquire him. Watkins has heard that talk and likes the sound of it.
“It’d be definitely a blessing playing with Megatron and Golden Tate, having Reggie Bush and Matthew Stafford,” Watkins told Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. “They’re doing a great job with the program with all the coaches. If I ever go there, sky’s the limit. . . . You don’t know what team’s jumping up for the first pick, anybody can be jumping up, so who knows? You never know.”
