Each year, the final player selected in the NFL Draft is given the title of "Mr. Irrelevant." It may sound like a slap in the face, but the nickname was created all in good fun and many players who receive the designation wear it with pride.
This year's Mr. Irrelevant was Louisville tight end Gerald Christian. A one-time Florida Gator who transferred to UL, Christian was chosen by the Arizona Cardinals with the 256th and final pick of the draft. Last season, Christian caught 32 passes for 384 yards and five touchdowns for Louisville.
Sure Christian is technically "Mr. Irrelevant" but that doesn't diminish his accomplishment at all. Being drafted is an honor in and of itself. Best of luck to him in Arizona.
