Bills pick Sammy Watkins: new teammates react on Twitter

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Buffalo Bills players immediately took to Twitter to welcome Sammy Watkins into the fold. They, like most fans, seem very excited by the move.

Buffalo Bills players were watching the 2014 NFL Draft alongside everybody else, and with a host of former Clemson teammates already on the team, reactions to the team's trade up to No. 4 overall to pick Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins conveyed an appropriate level of excitement.

(Jonathan Meeks, the Bills' fifth-round pick a year ago, played with Watkins for two seasons at Clemson.)

After the selection was made, quarterback E.J. Manuel, perhaps the biggest beneficiary of the move, didn't have (or need) words to express his feelings.

You can follow Watkins on Twitter, too, if you would like. Here was his first tweet after being selected:
