He was there for the picking and Whaley had the balls to get the most explosive guy.

Watkins was the number 1 player on the Bills board not Clowney, I love me some Clowney, but Watkins is spectacular, great move.

gave up nothing this year, so that's awesome.

 

Gave up a 1,4.

 

Less than ATL gave up to get Julio Jones I believe.

 

So, I'm fine with it. Time to win is now! Way to be aggressive.

A bold move that makes sense. There might be light at the end of the tunnel for this team. Let's hope the other rounds go this well.

We gave up nothing extra this year, just swapped from 9-4

 

Next year we give CLE our 1st and 4th.

I hate it. Cleveland could end up with 2 top 10 pick for Watkins. Watkins effectiveness will be limited by EJ.

Ok I see. ESPN only showed the 2015 picks.

Just keep in mind, it won't be impossible to recoup a number one next year. It would take some maneuvering, but there are ways to get a one next year. Could involve Spiller and a 2015 and or 2016 2nd rounders, but it could happen. Let's not worry about next years draft right now. Hopefully Watkins is the real deal and there's no looking back.

They should of stayed put and picked up OT. To help out EJ

And if he fails to perform, than a qb in the 1st 2015.

How could you not be. We gave up nothing this year, so we have our full complement of picks.

 

Oh and Mike Williams too.

I can't stop picturing Manuel throwing TD's to Watkins. And boy is that a pretty picture

We have up 2 first rounders and a 4th to move FIVE spots. Houston wanted one more 1st for what could be the next Bruce Smith. Id rather have had him. But welcome to Buffalo Sammy.

 

We really only gave up one first rounder, next year's. We gave up #9 this year, of course, but we got #4 in return, so that's not giving up a first. This is a great deal. Now we just have to see if Manuel can step it up.
