Bills Take Sammy Watkins At No.4 – 2014 NFL Draft
The Buffalo Bills traded up during the first round of Thursday’s NFL draft and grabbed super talented wide receiver Sammy Watkins out of Clemson University with the fourth overall pick.
The Florida native stands at 6′ 1” about 210 pounds and has the potential to be a big time NFL playmaker – listed at the No.1 prospect among WRs in this year’s draft.
At the combine, Watkins ran a 4.43 in the 40-yard dash, registered a 34-inch vertical jump and a 6.95 on the cone drill.
His NFL.com draft report indicates he can stretch the field and score big plays but is unproven going over the middle.
Last season at Clemson, his junior year, Watkins snagged 101 catches for over 1,400 yards and 12 TD’s. He also took Orange Bowl MVP honors with a game-high, and Orange Bowl record, 16 catches for 227 yards.
