5 of 12

7. Lawrence Phillips/RB/St. Louis Rams (1996-6th Pick Overall)

The hype with Phillips was enormous before the 1996 draft because many personnel evaluators believed he could be the next great University of Nebraska back. But all he became was a headache for the Rams, who cut him in his second season. —Adam Caplan (AP Photo/Joe Cavaretta)
