If the Lions have genuine interest in trading up for Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins, they're doing a bad job of hiding it. If they're not interested, they've put together a potent smokescreen.
Regardless, the chatter is growing that the Lions could make a move for a wideout who would instantly give Detroit arguably the top one-two-three punch at the position: Watkins, Calvin Johnson, and Golden Tate.
Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press writes that there's a "growing sense" in league circles that the Lions are willing to make the move. But they may have to move all the way up to No. 2 to get Watkins, and unless they'd be equally happy to take defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, they'll need to wait until the Rams are on the clock in order to avoid being leapfrogged for Watkins
