The deal comes less than 24 hours after the Bills chose Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins four overall in Thursday night's opening round of the NFL draft.  Watkins has arrived in Buffalo, where he talked about his play-making abilities.

"My mentality is to score every play. That’s my mentality, to score and catch every ball that touches my hands," Watkins said. "To create a problem for the defense, to make the defensive coordinator think hard, to make them double guard me. That’s my job."

Watkins says he grew up as a fan of the Bills teams of the early 2000s.
