Independent of his production, didn't the Bills give up a staggering amount to move up two picks? Particularly in a draft that was supposedly deep in WR talent?

I realize it's entirely possible that both Watkins and Mike Evans would have been gone by the time the Bills were drafting, but it just seems like a huge price to pay going forward.

sorry, they moved up more than 2 picks, but i stand by my criticism.

Really depends on how good the Bills are this coming year.

Another 6-10 type season would mean giving up quite a lot to their "de facto division rivals."

If he performs on the same tier as AJ Green, Calvin Johnson, Julio Jones...then it's a fine trade.
