Lions pre-draft approval poll: Bob Quinn (April 2017)

Do you approve of the job Bob Quinn has done in 15 months as the Lions’ GM?

NFL: Combine Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

We’re only days away from the 2017 NFL draft, which means it’s time to check in with the public opinion on Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn.

When we last checked in on Quinn, the team was about a month away from free agency. Quinn received a 93 percent approval rating at the time, which was actually slightly down from his 96 rating just before the Lions’ slide in December.

Since then, a lot has happened. March kicked off with a big controversy regarding Quinn’s comments on polarizing NFL prospect Joe Mixon. There were mixed feelings at the time within the Detroit community, but nationally, Quinn got hit hard for his comments, which some viewed as “tone-deaf” or insensitive.

However, much was forgotten after the Lions’ highly-regarded free agency period. The Lions arguably upgraded two spots on their offensive line, replacing Larry Warford and Riley Reiff with T.J. Lang and Rick Wagner. Though their moves on defense didn’t really drum up much excitement, the Lions still graded out positively by most analysts.

Before we vote, let’s check in on how Quinn’s popularity has moved in his 15 months on the job.

February 2017: 93 percent approval
December 2016: 96 percent approval
August 2016: 70 percent approval
June 2016: 86 percent approval
April 2016: 74 percent approval
February 2016: 72 percent approval

Quinn’s popularity has steadily risen since coming to Detroit, but has understandably plateaued in the 90s.

Let’s see where Quinn’s popularity lies as we stand on the verge of his second ever NFL Draft as a general manager.
