Watkins’ Bills ties stretch back to Butler

Bills top pick Sammy Watkins has a lot of bills ties already. He has three former Clemson Tigers on the roster with him and he and fellow Clemson WR Perry Tuttle were the only players in Bills history that Buffalo trade up within round one to draft. There’s still another Clemson-Bills receiver connection with Watkins.

By becoming Buffalo’s top choice with the fourth pick in the draft Watkins joined Bills top pick in 1979 Jerry Butler as the only receivers taken in the top five in Clemson school history.
