People who were seen as first rounders who slipped (e.g., McColgan, Grachev) are much, much less likely to succeed than guys who came out of nowhere to be drafted in a "too high" position with everyone screaming Who?! Why?! (e.g., Stepan, Chara).
Your theory on the light shinning seems solid but do you have anything more than a 4 player cherry picked sample to confirm that 2nd paragraph?
