NFL Draft Rumors: Lions would like to trade up to draft Texas A&M WR Mike Evans


The NFL Draft is right around the corner so brace yourself for rumors left and right. On Monday ESPN’s John Clayton is reporting that the Detroit Lions, who hold the 10th overall pick, would like to trade up to draft Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans.

“If the price isn’t too expensive, the Detroit Lions would like to move up a few spots to draft wide receiver Mike Evans,” ESPN’s John Clayton writes.

The Lions have been looking for a number two option behind Calvin Johnson, and signed Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate this offseason. Adding Evans opposite Johnson could open things up greatly for the Lions offense and take some of the attention off of Johnson, but of course it will only happen if the price is right.
