"Yeah, it's funny, man. That's what pushed us every week," Watkins said. "You always want to be doing what they're doing and top them just to keep yourself hungry."

"We've got a lot of room to grow, but I think we can be dominant like Julio (Jones) and Roddy White," Watkins said, referring to the Atlanta Falcons' top tandem. "With them, they could win any game at any time. And that's the situation we've got to get here."
The Bills' big investment in revamping their group of receivers is showing signs of paying off for a team that's been saddled with a popgun passing attack for much of the past decade.

General manager Doug Whaley thought so highly of Watkins' ability that he traded next year's first-round draft pick to move up five spots and select the receiver with the No. 4 pick.
As for Watkins, Jackson said: "Sammy's still scratching the surface, but he's got the potential to be one of the better ones that have played here in Buffalo."
