We still have a little while until the Patriots come on the clock tonight, but their divisional rival, the Buffalo Bills, have made a big move.

The Bills were originally set to pick in the ninth slot, but they pulled a fast one, and traded for the Clevelend Browns’ fourth pick. Buffalo gave up their ninth pick, their 109th pick, and next year’s first round pick as well. According to the official trade value chart, the Bills could have just given up their first rounder, and their second rounder to gain Clevelend’s pick.

I am going to be completely honest. This move doesn’t help the Pats. Watkins is a great player, and I think he could become one of the best receivers in the NFL in a few years. E.J. Manuel needs some help if he wants to progress in this league, and Watkins is the best possible weapon Buffalo could have gotten in this year’s draft.

Watkins amassed 101 receptions, 1,464 yards, and 12 touchdowns last year with the Clemson Tigers.
