Watkins: Nothing but speed on the field

With the addition of Sammy Watkins to Buffalo’s offense there is another player with sub 4.5 speed on the field. As the Bills rookie receiver sees it there is speed to burn on the Bills attack.

“It could be a fast paced offense,” Watkins told Buffalobills.com. “You have nothing but speed out there on the field. You’ve got great guys who have already been in the game, veterans. You’ve got a great receivers coach that played the game and knows the game and knows how to get the athletes the ball. It’s going to be a great team. You’ve got another outstanding receiver in Stevie Johnson there and I can come there and learn from him and start my career.”

Adding Watkins speed to that of Marquise Goodwin (4.27) and T.J. Graham (4.41) in particular gives Buffalo three wideouts with sub 4.45 speed. Add in C.J. Spiller’s 4.3 speed and it’s a lightning quick offense.
