Sammy Watkins Takes a Break from Making Ridiculous One-Handed Catches to Burn a Defender with His Sick Moves (Video)
Heading into the 2014 NFL Draft, there was an unusually high number of teams in need of a “franchise quarteback,” and for that reason most of the focus was on guys like Johnn Manziel, Blake Bortless, and Teddy Bridgewater. However, most analysts pegged Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins as the most talented and explosive offensive player in the country, so when the Buffalo Bills took him with the fourth overall pick, it wasn’t exactly a surprise.
So how are things going for Watkins and the Bills so far? Well, so far, things have gone as well as anyone could possibly have hoped. Nobody in the NFL has made more headlines out of training camp than the new Bills receiver. First it was a ridiculous one-handed catch. Then it was another ridiculous one-handed catch. Now he’s showing off some sick moves and proving he can run the routes, too.
Take a look:
Granted, all these highlights only came in practices, but skills are skills.
Something tells me E.J. Manuel‘s completion percentage might go up a few points this year.
