Bills trade up to the No. 4 pick for Clemson WR Sammy Watkins

The Bills' offense got another dose of speed to go with the likes of C.J. Spiller @CJSPILLER and Marquise Goodwin on Thursday night. They completed a trade with the Browns to move up from the No. 9 pick to No. 4 so they could select Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins. The Browns will receive the Bills' first-round pick this year, then a first-round and a fourth-round pick in 2015.

Fantasy Analysis:

Just today, a report came out stating that the Bills might trade lead wideout Stevie Johnson @StevieJohnson13 if they go after a WR early in the draft. Well, you can't go much earlier than this. Watkins can be an impact player right away. The comparisons are eye-opening. If those comparisons are correct, and Johnson does get dealt, I think Watkins can come in an put up at least WR3-worthy numbers right away. I don't doubt his talent; Watkins is special. But how much will E.J. Manuel @EJManuel3 improve in year two? That Bills offense has a lot of young, exciting players on it. Can they fulfill their potential?
