When the Buffalo Bills traded up to select former Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins, it came at the expense of three draft picks, including two first rounders. When parting with high picks, a team expects its pick to pay off, and show flashes of stardom early. Luckily for the Bills, Watkins has the potential to be a stud in the NFL, and he showed a glimpse of what he can do during practice today, when he hauled in an off balance one-handed catch after nearly falling down.

If Watkins can do stuff like this during the regular season, he’ll absolutely be worth the major investment made by the Bills.
