Sammy Watkins Lions 2014 NFL Draft odds

DETROIT, MI (The Spread) - Could the Detroit Lions be interested in pairing Calvin Johnson with another explosive receiver?

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports that the Lions are showing a "ton" of interest in Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins, who is expected to be selected in the top 10 this May. Detroit currently owns the No. 10 pick but it's doubtful that Watkins would fall that far. He's slated to go as high as No. 2 to the Rams.

Despite repeated attempts, the Lions have failed to secure a No. 2 receiver opposite "Megatron" to give them consistent production. Detroit released veteran wideout Nate Burleson back in February and GM Martin Mayhew was hesitant earlier this week when he was asked if he can rely on 25-year-old Ryan Broyles to come back quickly from his Achilles' injury. Receiver might not be as big of need for the Lions as other positions, but it's a need nonetheless.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Lions are currently 33/1 to win the 2015 Super Bowl and 18/1 to win a conference title. The Seahawks remain favored to win the Super Bowl at 11/2, while the 49ers are 13/2 and the Patriots are 9/1.

The first round of the 2014 NFL Draft will take place on Thursday, May 8.
