Sammy Watkins Makes Another Great One-Handed Catch

There's something neat about the fact that Sammy Watkins's camp highlight reel is all low-quality Vine video. As if we maybe shouldn't totally believe he's real. Here's another one:


It wasn't even his "good" hand:

"That one was kind of surprising because it was behind him and high," E.J. Manuel said after practice. "He made a great catch with one hand, with his left hand."

In Bills' fans ideal world, Watkins' doesn't have to make his grabs this spectacular. He'll work on his routes and be in a better position, and the QB will put it on his numbers. But Bills fans maybe more than anyone can tell you that ideal passing game doesn't exist, and these are very real strengths Watkins brings to the table: he's uncanny at tracking a ball in the air, and his hands are instantly among the best in the league.

If you can't move up to draft a QB, move up to draft a receiver who will make any QB markedly better.
