Sammy Watkins Believes A Team Will Trade Up For Him

Clemson WR Sammy Watkins is one of the top prospects entering the 2014 NFL Draft and has generated a lot of interest from teams around the league. He is expected to be taken in the top 10 picks, but Watkins believes that a team will move up in the draft in order to select him.

Check out his twitter feed:

He also said that he has had some interesting calls on the phone:

What are the teams telling him? Which team does he think is going to move up in the draft to select him? Someone has to be spilling their plans on selecting him in the draft.

One team to keep your eyes on are the Detroit Lions. The Lions have shown a lot of interest in the young wide receiver and have been talked about as a team that could be moving up in the draft to select their guy. They are looking to add weapons onto their roster for Matthew Stafford and Watkins could be a perfect fit with Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate on offense. Imagine that group on offense.
