Does round matter when drafting a QB?

I have been reading a lot of posts on drafting quarterbacks and how it is either important or not important what round they are drafted. In this post I will remain neutral but I have researched and punched up some numbers.I like stat mapping so here is some info to help you decide whether drafting high or low is a better way to go. I researched playoff teams and their quarterbacks from 2001 to 2010 and charted playoff appearances, wins, Superbowl's and Superbowl wins. then i separated them by draft round.
