The draft gets underway in a month and that means the gears are starting to churn on the rumor mill for all 32 teams.

One of the things churned out recently is word that the Lions may be interested in trading up to snag Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins at the top of the first round. Mike Florio will talk to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press on Wednesday’s PFT Live about that possibility and other things that Birkett’s heard about the team’s plans for the draft. We’ll also get any updates from the first few days of the team’s offseason workouts during Birkett’s visit to the show.

From there, it is up to PFT Planet to tell us what you want to know. Send your questions for Florio via Twitter — @ProFootballTalk — or give a call to¬†888-237-5269 during the show.

It all gets started at noon ET and you can watch it all live by clicking right here.

    Lions arent looking to trade up for Watkins. lol. We need to force the other team to punt once in a while so our score of 35 will get some W’s instead of L’s. Cant you see Front Office. Its obvious.

    They will be more likely to trade up if some of those QBs get selected in front of them, otherwise they might be better served trading back to right after those QBs do get selected if a lot remain on the board at 10.
