Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn just completed the third NFL Draft of his career. His most recent draft has certainly received some mixed reviews. While some fans believe his aggressive move to fix the running game (among other things) was completely justified, others think he got too pushy and ignored some other needs, specifically on the defensive side of the ball.

Before we get into whether you approved of Quinn’s draft, let’s take a look at where his approval rating was before the draft. When we last checked in on the Lions GM, he was coming off the heels of a polarizing free agency period. He cut Eric Ebron, he gave Ezekiel Ansah the franchise tag, and didn’t make any real splash free agency signings. Those were some tough decisions that were going to draw some criticism no matter what he did.

As a result, Quinn’s approval rating dropped nine points to 83 percent. That’s still a pretty darn high number for a Lions employee in his third year on the job. Here’s a look at his approval rating since joining the team in 2016.

March 2018: 83 percent approval
February 2018: 92 percent approval
November 2017: 78 percent approval
October 2017: 82 percent approval
August 2017: 95 percent approval
June 2017: 93 percent approval
April 2017: 97 percent approval
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
