It’s happened each of the last four years, and in 2014 it happened a fifth straight time. The Buffalo Bills first-round pick was a pre-draft visitor in Clemson WR Sammy Watkins.

Buffalobills.com painted the picture recently as to whether the Bills would again make a pre-draft visitor their top draft choice after doing so from 2010-2013. On Thursday night GM Doug Whaley made it a reality with the choice of Watkins, who made a pre-draft visit late last month.

Here’s the rundown of the last five pre-draft visitors who have become first round draft choices of the Bills.

2010 – C.J. Spiller
2011 – Marcell Dareus
2012 – Stephon Gilmore
2013 – EJ Manuel
2014 – Sammy Watkins
