JUST WATCH …

This website (whose founding editor is a diehard University of South Carolina football fan) has had its fun with arch-rival Clemson University in recent years.

Especially in light of that whole “five-peat” thing …

But there’s no denying the talent of former Clemson wideout Sammy Watkins – who was the first wide receiver selected in the 2014 NFL draft (fourth overall by the Buffalo Bills).

Watkins finished the 2013 season with 101 receptions for 1,464 yards and 12 touchdowns – including an Orange Bowl record 16 grabs for 227 yards (a performance which earned him the game’s MVP award and made him Clemson’s all-time receptions leader).  The 6-foot-1, 221-pound speedster finished his career at Clemson with 240 receptions for 3,391 yards and 27 touchdowns.

All of those are school records (the latter tying a mark set by DeAndre Hopkins from 2010-12).

Since arriving at Buffalo’s training camp last month, Watkins has been wowing NFL players, coaches and media with his exploits.

First, Watkins made an amazing one-handed catch after stumbling on a route (captured by Sal Cappacio of WGR 550 in Buffalo) …

Yeah …

Then there was this ridiculous over-the-shoulder one-handed grab of an off-target throw from Bills’ quarterback EJ Manuel (captured by WGRZ reporter Jonah Javad) …

Ummm … wow.

Most recently? Watkins took Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Lew Toler to school with this wicked crossover move (captured by Steelers’ beat writer Mark Kaboly) …

“So dirty,” observed Deadspin’s Sean Newell.

Indeed …

Buffalo kicks off its 2014 season on September 7 against the Chicago Bears. Kickoff is at 1:00 p.m. EDT and the game will be televised nationally by Fox. Based on what Watkins is showing in training camp, you might want to tune in.
