Sammy Watkins is scary good, but a Sammy Watkins that has improved greatly over the past few months is frightening.
The new Buffalo Bill says he’s a better receiver now than he was back in January when he was destroying Ohio State in the Orange Bowl.
“My routes are way better than I was at Clemson,” Watkins said according to the Buffalo Bills Insider. “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.”
That’s absolutely frightening if true.
