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.
