On the night before his first day of workouts as an NFL player, Bills first-round draft pick Sammy Watkins visited legendary Bills quarterback Jim Kelly in the hospital.

Watkins is friends with Chad Kelly, Jim’s nephew (pictured above on the far left), from their days on the Clemson football team. Another new Bill and former Clemson Tiger, Darius Robinson, also made last night’s visit. (pictured above standing next to Chad).

Watkins said he thought Kelly looked great and was in good spirits.

“He was laughing, joking around with us,” he said. “It was great. He’s a great man.”

Watkins said as soon as this weekend he plans to spend more time with the Kelly family and he’s very hopeful that next time Jim will be out of the hospital.
