Sammy Watkins has made some trips to see teams who shouldn’t be able to get him, such as the Lions, picking 10th.
But someone might be willing to make even more of a move for the Clemson wide receiver.
He tweeted out an intriguing message this afternoon, which included a few emoticons but what might be an interesting underlying meaning.
“All those teams in top 10 might draft me but I been thinking outside the box interesting phone calls,” he wrote.
There are several teams with great need at the position outside the top 10, among them the 49ers. But while they have draft picks to spare, it would take quite a haul to go from 30th to the top five.
Watkins is an explosive player, who could make an immediate impact. For a team which might be a player away, he could well be worth it.
