The Buffalo Bills signed first-round draft selection and wide receiver Sammy Watkins to a four-year contract, the team announced Wednesday.

Watkins, who was selected fourth overall, set career records at Clemson in receptions (240) and receiving yards (3,391) and for the most touchdowns (27). The 6-foot-1, 211-pound wide receiver posted school and league single-season bests in 2013, totaling 101 catches for 1,464 yards and 12 touchdowns.

The Bills included their 2015 first-round pick in a trade with the Cleveland Browns to move up from the No. 9 pick to draft Watkins.

The Bills traded wide receiver Stevie Johnson one day after selecting Watkins, clearing the way for Watkins to be the Bills' top receiver this season.
