Look guys, I am not saying that just because Player X was taken higher than Player Y, Player X is better than Player Y. I am just saying that, generally speaking, the more talented players are drafted higher than the less talented players. Its the reason for the draft- to give the worst teams the first crack at the best talent.
It looks to be the case for the top two rounds, but it seems to be more of a scrapshoot otherwise.

It's really hard to know for sure (regarding players outside the first two rounds) because the higher a player is picked, the more teams have been willing to give them more opportunities to play.
