Less than a week after the 2011 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills announced that Vice President of College Scouting Tom Modrak has been relieved of his duties.
"This is the time of year when we evaluate every element of our football operation and with the Draft now completed, we have decided to reorganize our personnel department," Bills general manager Buddy Nix said in a statement released by the team. "We have begun that process and made a decision to head in a different direction. We thank Tom for his 10 years of dedication to our organization and wish him the best in his future endeavors."
A former scout and personnel executive with the Pittsburgh Steelers (1978-97) and Philadelphia Eagles (1998-2001), Modrak joined the Bills organization in 2001 and had been in his most recent position since 2007.

Thanks a lot, Dak Prescott. Now more people will think the fourth round is still a gold mine for quarterbacks, but the data says otherwise. The update to our quarterback draft study for 1994-2016 shows little has changed: finding a good QB is really hard.
