Last night, within a couple hours of the close of the 2011 NFL Draft, SBNation.com's Andy Hutchins and I put together a 2012 NFL Mock Draft. Because, you know, that's what everyone does right after the draft is over. That and hand out rather meaningless grades.

After the 2010 NFL Draft, ESPN's Todd McShay had the Buffalo Bills selecting Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with the first overall pick. (Show of hands - would anyone have minded that this past Thursday?) This year, in the mock Andy and I put together, we had the Bills selecting Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones with the fifth overall pick.

The theme here is obvious: two drafts into the Buddy Nix and Chan Gailey era, the team still doesn't have a franchise quarterback. Even they have admitted it. They will continue looking for that long-term direction at the position next year, and early indications are they'll need another very early (as in Top 5) draft pick to get it done.

Most Bills fans believe that the Bills are setting up a solid foundation. In the end, it's more important that they get the living quarters - and that won't happen until they get their quarterback. Let the QB scouting of 2012 begin!
