Sammy Watkins made a name for himself for going over the middle at Clemson and having a fearless approach.
“He shows that,” Marrone said regarding Watkins’ fearlessness. “He’s made a very good career for himself, in college, being able to go over the middle. That’s always a big test when you get to this level to make sure you can come over the middle. He’s a fearless player and, again, at the same time you have to be smart when you do that.”
Yesterday, Watkins went over the middle and came out of it heading to the trainers table.With what some thought could be a concussion or even a cut, it turned out the Watkins got poked in the eye.
Doug Marrone also confirmed this and said that it is a risk that all football players have to take and especially one when the player is willing to go over the middle.
Watkins is that electrifying receiver that will go over the middle or has that break away speed to take it deep. We have already seen that he can get behind defenders and with the ability to go over the middle as well and get yards after the catch, he will definitely add another dimension to this Bills offense that has been missing for some time. Line him up in the slot or out wide, it doesn’t matter because he will find room to get the ball thrown to him.
