The draft is underway and Jadeveon Clowney is the 1st overall pick. The Buffalo Bills have also made their selection at the 4th pick overall. There were rumors that the Bills would trade up and they do make a trade with the Cleveland Browns and move up 5 spots to select Sammy Watkins WR, Clemson with their first pick at the 4th spot overall.
To get the 4th overall pick, the Bills traded this years 9th, and next years 1st and 4th round picks. No Players.
With Watkins coming to Buffalo, they are wasting no time in making this team better and looking to improve from years past and make a viable push to break what seems to be a lifetime but is really only a 14 year playoff drought. Watkins will bring an explosiveness to this Bills offensive that we have not seen in years.
STRENGTHS: Smooth acceleration and doesn’t take long to get up to full speed. Follows blocks well with controlled burst to weave through defenders – multiple gears to win at every level of the field.
Sharp footwork off the line of scrimmage to beat press and get vertical with his galloping strides. Terrific body control and coordination with smooth hips and joints. Good depth in his routes with quick footwork in/out of his breaks, working the soft spots vs. zone.
Buffalo’s offensive weapons look like this. Manuel QB
Spiller, Jackson RB
Watkins, Johnson, Williams, Woods, Goodwin, Graham WR
Their is an increase in explosiveness on the Buffalo offense. Good things to come in Buffalo.
