Sammy Watkins to the Lions


I hate to do this guys. I really do.

But for real, we have less than 10% chance of even going after Watkins. For all of you who say he expresses interest in coming here, you're being stupid. He has done the same exact thing with every other team in the top ten, and if you look at interviews with him, his consistent answer is that he doesn't care where he ends up, just that he be an impact player on his squad.

As for all the buzz our organization is making around Sammy.... Is it a smokescreen? is it not? Absolutely nobody can answer that accurately unless they are inside the FO. I'll tell you what's a bad bargaining move though, telling everyone how much you love the product. If we do intend to trade up for Watkins, which we will most certainly have to do in order to obtain him, then we are making it much harder for ourselves with all this media attention.

Don't get me wrong guys, I love Sammy, and I would like him to come to the Lions for sure. However, will we trade up for him? SHOULD we trade up for him? I'd take him at 10 but he won't fall that far. I really think we are over hyping a single player, which is not good. All I want from the draft are plugs for our holes.

Discuss, please.
