What was your absolute worst first round pick in the last 10 years?

Postby donnieclark » Tue May 23, 2017 11:39 pm

I'm lookin at mine and one of the funniest and worst picks I've ever made in the first round was 2010, pick 8, I selected..... :drum roll: Pierre Thomas! :lol::unsure: don't ask
Actually I read some huge hype article and I just thought he was going to be one hell of a beast that year. Needlessly to say I came out at like 8th out of 12, was one of my worst picks ever tryin to be cute. What about you guys, have any absolutely horribly first round picks?

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

I traded up to fifth for Justin Blackmon. I must have been drunk.

I guess the jury is still out, Treadwell. Closely followed by the year I drafted Lacy in a start up the year he fattened up

2011 - second year of dynasty and I needed a TE. Drafted with the second overall pick Lance Kendricks.

I drew the 15th pick (16tms) in an inaugural season draft in 2015. I traded up as far as 10th to draft Dorial Green-Beckham. I passed on Devante Parker.

In 2014, same situation different league, I draft Marquise Lee at 1.12 and passed on Kelvin Benjamin. Not as bad.
Just a guy who loves fantasy football - specifically defense.

Justin Hunter at 1.14

Not that there was much better left on the board, but the pick could have easily been traded for a future first.

I traded up to pick 1.03 to draft Bishop Sankey. That was really an awesome experience. Luckily I was rebuilding and had three top five picks. Two of those picks have been frustrating (Sankey and Sammy Watkins) but the third has been really good (Mike Evans)

A big reminder to us all about the unpredictability of those rookie picks.
