ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WACH) - Former Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins says the Buffalo Bills drafted him to win.
The team introduced the No. 4 draft pick on Friday.
"The best moment of my life right now. Itâ??s a great accomplishment," said Watkins. "Iâ??m proud to be a Bill and I canâ??t wait to get it started. I want to thank all the fans and the organization for believing in me."
The Bills moved up five spots in a trade deal with the Browns on the first night of the draft to secure Clemson's record-setting receiver.
Watkins was high on the Bills radar entering the draft, and provides Buffalo with a dynamic threat in an offense that was inconsistent last year.
The 6-foot, 211-pound Watkins finished with 240 catches for 3,391 yards and 27 touchdowns in his three seasons at Clemson.
"My mentality is to score every play. Thatâ??s my mentality, to score and catch every ball that touches my hands," said Watkins. "Throughout my whole life Iâ??ve been having high expectations for myself and my coaches and my parents and peers also. For me itâ??s to keep doing what Iâ??ve been doing, which is working hard and being a great citizen."
Watkins joins Pro Bowler and former Clemson runningback C.J. Spiller in Buffalo.
