Sammy Watkins Lives up to the Hype with This One-Handed Grab (Video)
Sammy Watkins has had some big shoes to fill since he was taken by the Buffalo Bills with the fourth overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. And while we’ve seen some early glimpses of his crazy-good athleticism over the past year-and-a-half, he hasn’t QUITE been the human highlight reel we’ve been hoping for, often due to a lack of opportunities.
Well, last night in a hard-fought contest against the Patriots, he was able to show us a few glimmers of excellence, like this catch below:

That’s just a great one-handed grab, completed on the fly. That’s what we expect from Mr. Watkins, and I’m sure he wants to show us more plays like that.
If ever you wanted to make a case for more targets, I think demonstrating you can catch anything within six feet of you is a good start.
