The Bills are scheduled to pick twice Friday as the NFL Draft continues in New York City, but what the team did Thursday night is still on the top of many fans' minds.

The Bills made a big splash last night in the first round, trading up from the ninth pick to get their guy.

Sammy Watkins was considered the top receiver in this year's draft by experts across the country.

He also returned punts and kickoffs at Clemson.

To get the fourth pick, the Bills gave up their ninth pick and next year's first and fourth round draft picks to the Cleveland Browns.

Bills General Manager Doug Whaley said the organization has been working on making a trade for quite some time, despite it coming together at the last minute.

"It came together in the last minute," Whaley said. "We had talked throughout the week with a bunch of teams, nothing solid, but as the draft started to unfold the talks intensified and then we hammered a deal out actually with maybe five minutes on the Browns pick."
