ORCHARD PARK, N. Cristian Zapata Jersey .Y. -- Doug Whaley was willing to risk future draft picks for the opportunity to land receiver Sammy Watkins and put the Buffalo Bills in a position to make the playoffs this season. In his first NFL draft as the Bills general manager, Whaley struck a deal with the Cleveland Browns to move up five spots to select the Clemson receiver with the fourth pick on Thursday night. To get Watkins, Buffalo gave up its No. 9 pick this year, plus a first- and a fourth-round pick in next years draft. "We thought it was a calculated risk, and a risk we were willing to take," said Whaley, who took over after Buddy Nix stepped down a year ago. "The high cost of not making the playoffs is something we weighed, and we thought this guy was going to get us to the playoffs." The Bills are coming off their third consecutive six-win season. Theyve also gone 14 seasons without a playoff berth -- the NFLs longest active drought. Watkins has the potential of providing the Bills sputtering offence a dynamic threat. And he addresses the objective Whaley outlined in the weeks leading up to the draft: add talent to spur the development of quarterback EJ Manuel, who is coming off an inconsistent and injury-shortened rookie season. "Hes automatically going to make our quarterback better and us better as a team," Whaley said. Manuel expressed his excitement by posting 16 exclamation marks on his Twitter account after Watkins was picked. Buffalo finished last year 19th in total yards gained, and 29th in yards passing. Manuel had his development stunted by three separate knee injuries that led to him missing six regular season and two preseason games. He finished with a 4-6 record with 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Watkins, listed at just over 6-feet and 211 pounds, put up eye-popping numbers during his three-year college career. He finished with 240 catches for 3,391 yards and 27 touchdowns in 29 starts, and set 23 school records. Watkins joined Rod Gardner as the only Clemson players to have multiple seasons topping 1,000 yards receiving. And hes the only Tigers player to score more than 10 touchdowns receiving in more than one season. Last year, Watkins had 101 catches for 1,464 yards and 12 touchdowns. Watkins was so excited to be drafted that he took a picture of himself and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell at the draft podium at Radio City Music Hall. And Watkins can fully appreciate the burden of expectation placed on his shoulders in knowing what the Bills traded away to draft him. "That is a lot, but for me, I think I am prepared," he said. "I need to be 100 per cent when I get there. I need to be starting off on the right foot." Watkins is friends with former Clemson running back C.J. Spiller, who was Buffalos first-round pick in the 2010 draft. Now he gets to join Spiller on a team that has been stocking up on young offensive talent, particularly at the receiver position. Buffalo selected Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin with second- and third-round picks last year. The Bills also made a trade with Tampa Bay last month to acquire Mike Williams. Watkins addition raises questions about returning starter Stevie Johnsons future with the team. Whaley declined to address Johnsons status, saying the days focus was about Watkins. The trade with the Browns began developing immediately after Jacksonville selected UCF quarterback Blake Bortles with the No. 3 pick. "We went into this draft saying we were going to be bold, and we made a bold move," Bills President Russ Brandon said. "Were sitting up here very pleased right now." The Bills only have five picks left. Buffalo is next scheduled to pick 41st overall, in the second round set for Friday. Its the first Bills draft since Ralph Wilson -- the teams owner and founder -- died in March. The Bills will be put up for sale, raising concerns the franchise could eventually relocate. Goodell continued to express optimism the Bills will remain in Buffalo in an interview with ESPN about an hour before the draft began. "We want to keep our teams in their current markets," Goodell said. "But in particular, I think the Bills fans have demonstrated their passion and their support for the team." Goodell then reiterated what he said a day earlier, noting a new stadium would help secure the teams long-term future. Pablo Armero Jersey . The St. Louis Cardinals were scheduled to arrive in Boston in time for a workout on Tuesday afternoon. Much of Mondays discussion focused on Bostons lineup considerations as the series progresses, specifically when the venue shifts to St. Roger Martinez Jersey .ca presents its latest weekly power rankings for the 2013-14 Barclays Premier League season. http://www.soccercolombiamart.com/world-cup-santiago-arias-football-jersey/ . Omar Rahou made the discriminatory gesture several times while celebrating scoring a goal against Romania at Antwerp in January, UEFA said. The sanction was double the five-match ban Nicolas Anelka received from an English Football Association independent tribunal last week for the same act.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Western Conference has six teams with at least 13 wins and the Portland Trail Blazers are one of them. The Blazers are one of the hottest teams in the entire league and will make a trip to Denver Tuesday to face the Nuggets at the Pepsi Center. Portland had a season-best nine-game winning streak stopped with Fridays 112-99 loss to the league-leading Memphis Grizzlies. Portland got back on track two days later with a 107-93 triumph versus the Minnesota Timberwolves and LaMarcus Aldridge led the way with 26 points and 15 rebounds. Aldridge leads the Blazers in points (21.4) and rebounds (9.6), and has registered four double-doubles in the past five games. Wesley Matthews scored 23 points versus the Timberwolves and Damian Lillard chipped in 17 to go with eight assists for Portland, which allowed 32 points in the fourth quarter and fended off what could have been a Minnesota rally. It was a struggle for most of the night just kind of getting into a rhythm, said Portland coach Terry Stotts, who reached 100 wins with the team. When we were able to get some stops in the second and third quarter, that was important for us. Thats when were at our best, when we get some stops. Im disappointed that they scored 32 in the fourth quarter. I would have liked to have a better defensive fourth quarter. ... But its hard to be too disappointed with a win. The Trail Blazers outrebounded Minnesota, 54-43, and have finished with more boards than their opponents in four of the last five games. Lillard scored 13 points in the fourth quarter and Matthews made six 3-pointers for a third consecutive game, a team record. The Trail Blazers are 4-0 against Northwest opponents and 11-1 when scoring 100 or more points. They are seventh with 104.2 ppg and seventh iin opponents scoring (96. Andres Escobar Jersey. 2). Portland, which is 4-2 on the road, will host Indiana Thursday before heading east for five straight against New York, Detroit, Minnesota, Chicago and Indiana. Denver squeezed past the Utah Jazz, 103-101, Monday night in Salt Lake City and struggled in the second half. The Jazz had a 58-41 advantage over the last two quarters, but the Nuggets used a 36-20 difference in the second to get the win. Ty Lawson and Wilson Chandler were two of seven players to score in double digits and finished with 15 points apiece. Lawson handed out 12 assists, while Arron Afflalo scored 14 points before being ejected with 5:55 to play for a hard foul on Alec Burks. A flagrant foul type 2 is an immediate ejection. Either way, the Nuggets held on for the win, their eighth in 10 games. It feels good to be on the winning side of things, Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw said. A close game in a hostile environment, and we had to make the plays we needed to win the game and we were able to do it and have a positive experience behind that, so well take it. Denver may be fourth in scoring with 105.4 ppg, but is 26th in opponents scoring at 105.2 ppg. That could mean trouble with the Blazers coming into the Rocky Mountains with Aldridge, Lillard and the hot-shooting Matthews. The Nuggets, who are 5-3 at home, will start a three-game trip east on Friday against Washington, Atlanta and Toronto. Nuggets center JaVale McGee has missed the last four games with a leg injury and is questionable Tuesday. Portland is already 2-0 against Denver this season and has won six straight and 10 of the past 14 games between division rivals. The Blazers have won three straight at Denver, but are only 5-24 in the previous 29 matchups as the guest in this series.
