Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins hurt his ribs after being struck in the side during the first quarter of Buffalo’s preseason finale against the Detroit Lions on Thursday night.
Let’s take a look at five NFL rookies that will shine this season.
When Sammy Watkins was drafted out of Clemson by the Buffalo Bills, it was thought that the partnering of him and Stevie Johnson would make one of the best wide receiver tandems in the NFL. Now, he’s the number one receiver and he’s already looking to lead the Bills from worst to first.
NFL training camps start this week. And these rookies may be already feeling the pressure.
Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate and Sammy Watkins? It seems that it’s more and more of a possibility everyday that the Lions will make a move for the standout WR.
It is no secret that the Lions need help in the secondary, have to find a LB who can be impactful, and in what many feel is possibly the deepest WR draft ever, have to find an impact wideout.
Those who would hate to see the Detroit Lions take another wide receiver with their first pick in the NFL draft need to steel themselves for disappointment.
With the NFL Draft held on Thursday May 8, and still over a week away not many people have any idea what the Detroit Lions are going to do with their tenth pick.
“I don’t see this locker room being a selfish locker room or getting upset that we brought in another great player,” Tate added.
The Lions have not given any indication of what position they will target in the draft.
