I just went through the drafts 1998-2007 and did a subjective count of top 4 d out of all taken (didn't count Luc Bourdon RIP). This is the breakdown I got:

Picks 1-10:
Top 4 D- 15
D Taken- 22
Success rate- 68%

Picks 11-20:
Top 4 D- 13
D Taken- 31
Success rate- 43%

Picks 21-30:
Top 4 D- 11
D Taken- 35
Success rate- 31%

"Success" here is getting a top 4 d rather than a top pairing.
