According to Ian Rapoport, the Detroit Lions offered a 1st and 3rd round pick for San Francisco 49ers, WR Deebo Samuel.
It is not clear which first-round pick the Lions offered but we would assume it was No. 32.

Previous Report regarding Deebo Samuel
Unless you have been locked in a soundproof room for the day, you have almost certainly heard that the Detroit Lions traded up to No. 12 in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft to select WR Jameson Williams out of Alabama.
“The Jets offered pick 10 and a (later) pick swap, so basically like the equivalent of between pick 13 and pick 14,” Rapoport said. “And the 49ers wouldn’t do it. The Lions had an offer on the table. Of course, the Lions ended up moving up for Jameson Williams, so they go their guy eventually.
“The 49ers just wouldn’t engage and I think everyone was just sort of waiting.”

What Does Jahan Dotson Bring to the Commanders?
The Washington Commanders tried to upgrade their receiver room last offseason by signing Curtis Samuel, and they took another stab at it this year by selecting Jahan Dotson with the 16th pick in the first round of the draft.
At just 5-foot-11, 181 pounds, Dotson is a smaller wideout who has just a 50th-percentile breakout age (20.5), according to PlayerProfiler. On the positive, he rates in the 95th percentile in final-season target share (32.5%) and in the 90th percentile in college dominator rating (44.3%).
