Has anyone ever done a statistical study on risers vs fallers?

Say Player A is ranked 15th in the preliminary rankings. Player B is ranked 45th. In the final rankings, they are 29th and 30th. Which player goes on to have the better career?

Intuitively you'd think that Player B would be better but I'd like to see some hard data to back it up.

I've started compiling a time series of draft rankings, but I just began this year. Come back to me in 2017, and we'll see what happened.

How far back can you go with that information though?

Is there reports from 2000 and on?
