It’s not even disputable that former Clemson receiver, Sammy Watkins will be the first wide receiver to go off the board in the 2014 NFL draft. But what team will end up the lucky winner? Sammy Watkins shares his thoughts here on what it would be like if he joined the Detroit Lions..
““I think that would be crazy,” Watkins told FOXSports.com. “You wouldn’t be able to double-guard Megatron. You wouldn’t be able to double-guard me. Basically it would be pick your poison and then you have Golden Tate in the slot. He runs nice routes and is a very physical guy. Then you have Reggie Bush in the backfield. There would be a lot of speed in that offense.”
For the Detroit Lions to end up with Watkins in the draft is unlikely due to the fact they have 10th pick. The Lions would have to do some handy trade work to obtain a higher draft pick, and if they were to pull that off, I think Watkins would be a fabulous addition to a team whose quarterback is known to throw upwards of 5,000 yards per season. Yes; Sammy Watkins wants you, Matthew Stafford.
