He hasn’t played a game in four months. Sammy Watkins has been through the NFL combine and his pro day along with several private workouts.
But after his first session with the rest of the Bills rookies on Saturday, Watkins says he’s already a better route runner than he was when he played his last game for Clemson.
“My routes are way better than I was at Clemson,” Watkins said after the 80-minute workout Saturday. “It was more of being fast being quick and just get me the ball. Now it’s more of being detailed, being a route runner, being fluid through your routes and not making everything hard on yourself. It’s about leverage, pushing your route, pushing depth and being on the same page as the quarterback.”
“I’ve gotten better,” he said. “That’s the NFL. You learn more and more here. You’ve got smarter guys here, guys who teach you details, and that’s what it’s about on Sundays—the details.”
