Bills GM Brandon Beane Looking to Trade Up in the Draft to Snag a QB

Bills GM Brandon Beane is trying to trade up in the first round in hopes of selecting a franchise quarterback, Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports reports.

“Brandon is trying like hell to get up and get a quarterback,” said one general manager who has spoken to Beane recently. “I’m convinced he’ll trade up twice more if he has to. It reminds me of (Eagles general manager) Howie (Roseman) a few years ago (when he was moving up to land Carson Wentz).”

Several general managers LaCanfora spoke to believe there is still ample opportunity for the Giants and Bills to make a move – Bills general manager Brandon Beane worked under Giants GM Dave Gettleman in Carolina for a spell – and no one is convinced that the Bills are done wheeling and dealing.

Of course. Gettleman isn’t interested in dropping all the way back to 12th overall, where the Bills currently sit after their trade with the Bengals. But if Beane can split the difference somewhat, then odds are quite good the Bills and Giants could be trade partners. If, say, the Broncos aren’t convinced there is a quarterback worth taking at the fifth spot, that would be a perfect launching point for Beane. And that would be a sweetspot for Gettleman.

“If Beane gets the five, I know he can get to two,” said the general manager who has been in contact with Beane.
