Former Clemson University All-American wide receiver Sammy Watkins has looked uber impressive thus far in training camp. The Buffalo Bills traded up to the fourth pick in May’s NFL draft in order to snag Watkins early, and boy does it look like the right move thus far.
Grainy footage was released earlier this week highlighting an unbelievable one handed grab made by Watkins in practice. Today, another handheld device caught Watkins burning Steelers defensive back Lew Toller during the Bills and Steelers joint practice.
In a red zone drill, Watkins lined up across from Toller and completely broke his ankles en route to catching a wide open touchdown pass from EJ Manuel. Check out Watkins’ incredible moves in the video below:
Nearly every other day Watkins is making some other player look bad in practice simply by making an astonishing play. If he can keep up the impressive performance throughout the season, you would be hard pressed to find a better rookie of the year candidate.
As for fantasy football players, Watkins may be someone you reach for early in hopes of big dividends later on in the season. If he and EJ Manuel develop a chemistry, they can become a dangerous tandem up in Buffalo.
