NFL Draft Rumors: Sammy Watkins to visit Jacksonville Jaguars, St. Louis Rams


Clemson Tigers’ wide receiver Sammy Watkins is obviously one of the most highly touted prospects in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Watkins has often been connected to the Oakland Raiders and Tampa Buccaneers. Both teams pick in the top 10 and both have a giant need at wide receiver (the Buccaneers recently turned wide receiver from a position of strength to a very weak position after trading Mike Williams to the Buffalo Bills).

The Detroit Lions are so excited about the prospect of adding Watkins, they could reportedly trade up to pair him with the league’s best receiver, Calvin Johnson.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are another team that is desperate for play makers and have shown interest in Watkins.

Now, another team picking at the top of the draft could get involved.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com, Watkins is visiting the Jacksonville Jaguars Wednesday and will be in St. Louis to see the Rams on Monday.


Watkins had 101 receptions for 1,464 yards and 12 touchdowns last season.
