Spoiler alert! Bob Quin has drafted only 1 Pro Bowler out of his 34 (a 3% hit rate so far). But what’s more interesting is seeing how other GMs do at picking pro-bowl-caliber talent. The narrator says 10% is a good hit rate.
Oh, and I did the (too-much-time-at-home) work of looking up Martin Mayhew’s hit rate as Lions GM. He’s had 7 pro-bowlers in 53 picks, a surprising 13%.
Stafford, Suh, Ansah, Slay, Guard Larry Warford (w/Saints), Eric Ebron (w/Colts), Quandre Diggs (w/Seattle) this past season he went as an alternate to my shock and dismay. It’s also interesting that they’re all at different positions and never all played on the same team.
I took this to mean Mayhew was a better drafter than we thought, but the coaches that he chose didn’t maximize player potential. You might see it differently. Apparently coaches matter across the league when you look at who actually finds top talent and how their teams finish each year.
