The Oakland Raiders have been rumored to have major interest in Sammy Watkins for the majority of the offseason, and may see him as the playmaker necessary to take their offensive improvements this offseason to the next level.
The "great" receiver that McKenzie is referring to is most likely Watkins, who has been labeled by many pundits as being as close to a sure thing as any skill position player in this draft class.
