The Bills traded up to select Watkins with the No. 4 pick in May's draft. Buffalo sent its 2014 first-round pick, a 2015 fourth-round pick, and its 2015 first-round pick to Cleveland to move up. The Browns took Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert with the No. 9 pick acquired in the trade.

Watkins has three catches for 21 yards in three preseason games.
