The 2016 NFL draft introduced many talented football players to the league, like the Dallas Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott and the Philadelphia Eagles' Carson Wentz. Unfortunately, some NFL draft picks turned out be busts. Whether they were overwhelmed by pressure or just had a bad season, these NFL rookies ended up underperforming this year. Here are the most disappointing NFL draft picks of the 2016-2017 season.
Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff was the first overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft, so expectations started out high. Despite their strong start, the Rams ended the 2016-2017 season with 4-12. Playing in seven games, Jared Goff only threw five touchdowns, but threw seven interceptions. However, many fans agree that the worst NFL rookie in the 2016-2017 season was kicker Roberto Aguayo of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Ending the season with a 75% field goal completion, Robert Aguayo also missed two PATs (extra points).
