List Rules Vote up players selected in the 2016-17 NFL draft who failed to meet expectations.

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). 

Vote up the most disappointing NFL draft picks of the 2016-2017 season. Is Jared Goff to blame for the Los Angeles Rams' awful season? Maybe you have a grudge against Denver Broncos quarterback Paxton Lynch or Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Laquon Treadwell? Who were the worst rookies in the NFL in the 2016-2017 season? Feel free to add other NFL rookies you think played horribly this season. 

If you're interested in other players who had shortcomings this year, this list ranks the most disappointing NFL player in the 2016-2017 season overall.
