As a follow-up to a previous board topic I posted, where the Lions were considering trading up to get Watkins (as well as Watkins posting pics of Lions paraphenalia on his Tumblr), it seems Sammy is at it again.
Former Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins isn’t concerned which team he lands with as long as he’s one of the first players picked in May’s 2014 NFL Draft.
But if the Lions, who were recently reported as having interest in Watkins, were to select him the 20-year-old wide receiver would fit right in.
“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.
“That’s the type of offense that I want to play in. It’s a very explosive offense. Being with good coaches, an older wide receiver and a quarterback would definitely help me out a lot.”
