Watkins looking forward to 'moving all over the field'


The Buffalo Bills traded up five spots in the 2014 NFL Draft to snag receiver Sammy Watkins at No. 4 overall.

And in order to get their money's worth, they plan on utilizing the prized Clemson product in a multitude of ways.

“That just makes me even happier knowing that I am going to be moved all over the field running different and various routes,” Watkins told NFL Network Thursday, via “It’s just a blessing that I got to be in this position, I just got to come prepared and be ready, dissect the playbook, and be hungry and humble."

Watkins says he's just simply excited to compete, and slated for regular matchups with the likes of Darrelle Revis, Brandon Browner and Brent Grimes, he'll have plenty of competition.

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Watkins welcomes the challenge.

"I believe in my craft," he said.“. . . For me, it is going out there week in and week out and competing. That is what the game is about. Of course, there are great corners all over the league. They are great at what they do.

"For me, it is just to go out there and make the best plays."
