There's always a rhyme or reason for a specific drill in practice -- whether it's at the recreational or professional level.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins took part in a strange drill at practice on Thursday, and needless to say, he didn't succeed. Watkins sat on the ground as a coach threw footballs over his head. Sure, seems like a good drill for catching passes over-the-shoulder, right?

Well, it doesn't look like it helped Watkins at all. Take a look.

That's five balls Watkins missed. Obviously, he's an extremely talented receiver and has made some spectacular catches in his young career, but there were none in this video.

Throw deep passes down the sideline and Watkins will make one-handed, between-the-legs catches with ease. Throw a ball over his head while he's sitting down, and he won't catch a single one.
