    Draft Bust by position analysis

    Espn page 2 has a great analysis about 1st round draft busts by positions. The safest D positions are LB and Safety. The worst D position is CB, with DE and DT being about the same (except for the Rams as they note who have been dismal).

    Make Patrick Willis look good!

    Rams were #8 on the list of teams with most busts!

    Here is there safe list and the link to the analysis:

    Safe First Rounders This Year, Based on Study
    Joe Thomas, OT, Wisconsin -- Only 1/3 of OL end up busts. Thomas won't be one of them.
    Gaines Adams, DE, Clemson -- An identical bust percentage for DEs and Adams is the best of the bunch.
    Adam Carriker, DE, Nebraska -- A great 3-4 scheme fit, and not far behind Adams after a great Senior Bowl week.
    LaRon Landry, S, LSU -- The safest position on the board.
    Brandon Merriweather, S, Miami -- Miami safeties have also done well.
    Patrick Willis, LB, Mississippi -- Our second-safest position, plus P-Willie was ultra-productive with all the measurables.
    Amobi Okoye, DT, Louisville -- Can you say upside? Okoye is only 19 and reminds some of Tommie Harris.

    Re: Draft Bust by position analysis

    Interesting numbers. Something that seemed to apply to us (perhaps moreso before today's trade)...

    First Round Bust Percentage
    WR -- 45 percent
    DT -- 33 percent

    First-Round Pro Bowl Percentages
    DT -- 40 percent
    WR -- 31 percent
    I'm not saying anything, I'm just saying...
