Belish hopes to escalate quickly but not get out of hand.
Default Draft bust percentage

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2...erbacks/070425

ESPN's Page 2 did a bit of research to determine what are the safest 1st-round picks in the draft using the draft classes from 1989 - 2003. Turns out the lowest-risk positions to draft are safeties (only 11% busts) and linebackers (16%) with QBs bringing up the rear (53%).

The QBs thing doesn't surprise me, considering all the high-profile busts we always see. I was surprised that is was more than half, because you'd think that with all the scouting teams do they'd be successful most of the time, especially with a position as important as the QB.
