If you spent much time reading mock drafts and using mock draft simulators over the last few months, it turns out you’re a lot like a superstar NFL quarterback.

Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane appeared on The Pat McAfee Show on Tuesday to discuss the 2024 NFL Draft, which concluded on Saturday.

Pat McAfee mentioned how Bills quarterback Josh Allen is “dialed in” throughout the pre-draft process, and he asked Beane if Allen would like to be a general manager down the road.

Beane: “No, [Allen doesn’t] want to do that. But he does love the process. He likes the mock draft. I swear the guy’s done 200 mock drafts.  He’ll send me what his final tally of our draft was. ‘Hey Beane, I traded next year’s 2, but with that I got us these guys.’ And you look at it, and the first four picks are all like guys that we have in the top-50 on our board. Like, Josh, this is not reality. I love that he loves it, and it’s fun. And we’d be stupid to not hear some of his thoughts on things.”

The Bills traded with the Kansas City Chiefs to move from the 28th overall pick to the 32nd pick at the end of the first round, before trading down into the second round with the Carolina Panthers at the 33rd pick. At No. 33, the Bills addressed their need at wide receiver, selecting Florida State’s Keon Coleman.

That’s the kind of wheeling and dealing Allen was likely doing frequently in mock draft simulators.

Beane told McAfee, “Keon was one of the guys [Allen] definitely did like. He was like, ‘I’d be fired up if that was one of the guys we got.'”
