If Campbell was at a different position, with his talent level and work ethic and mental makeup, he'd still be a safe pick.

High pick goalies that fail will either flame out and explode violently due to injuries like DiPietro or LeClaire, or they just aren't that good in the first place. Campbell has no injury history of note, has stellar work ethic, and is talented enough that he puts up better numbers in terrible defensive systems than his counterparts.

He's a safe pick because he plays really really well behind a competent defense. Against high talent kids.
