Description:
"Mr. Irrelevant" is the title bestowed each year upon the last pick of the annual National Football League draft.

Irrelevant Week

The name arose in 1976, when former Southern California and NFL receiver Paul Salata founded "Irrelevant Week" in Newport Beach, California. He announced the final pick of the NFL draft. During the summer after the draft, the new Mr. Irrelevant and his family are invited to spend a week in Newport, California, where they enjoy a golf tournament, a regatta, a roast giving advice to the new draftee, and a ceremony awarding him the Lowsman Trophy. The trophy mimics the Heisman, but depicts a player fumbling a football.

The first Mr. Irrelevant was Kelvin Kirk, pick number 487 of the 1976 draft. The current Mr. Irrelevant is defensive end Cheta Ozougwu of the Rice University Owls, who was selected by the Houston Texans as pick number 254 of the 2011 draft.
