Sammy Watkins, Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills made numerous draft-day trades in the 2014 draft, particularly involving the wide receiver position.  One of the trades involved Steve Johnson, who was traded to the San Francisco 49ers on draft day, following a low 3 touchdown season.

However, the Bills arguably made a bigger trade with the Cleveland Browns in the first round, as they traded up to select the Clemson standout Sammy Watkins.  Watkins, who was the number one overall receiver coming into the draft, was projected to be selected within the first five picks, making the Bills trade a bold move.

Taking a look at the Bill’s depth chart at wideout, alongside rookie Sammy Watkins will likely stand newly acquired Mike Williams, who was traded from Tampa Bay for a 6th round pick.  Behind Sammy and Williams lies Robert Woods, TJ Graham, and Marquise Goodwin.

The Bills who have had a lack of production from the passing offense, seem to have a bit to look forward to with some new wideouts, and a healthy EJ Manuel.
