Does BR know a successful draft pick when they see it?

This is an open call to compile the data from all the "Do you approve of this pick?" polls that go out following each draft selection for the Bills.

Is there a correlation between the immediate fan reaction and the player outcome? If there is, I won't have to watch the draft, I can just check your immediate reaction poll to know if we picked good players or not.

Obviously there are exceptions–Jairus Byrd pick probably being the greatest–but I'm just looking to see if there's any trends.

All draft picks since we started the polls should fall in one of 4 buckets:

  1. Good-as-suspected
  2. Bad-as-suspected
  3. Good-as-a-surprise (Byrd as an example)
  4. Bad-as-a-surprise

Throw out the "Not Sure" poll option if you like, and resist the urge to call a player anything other than "good" or "bad". I wouldn't include players from '13's draft, but '12 is fine. Maybe this has already been done? If not, I'd love to see the results.

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
