|Awarded for||The last draft pick of the National Football League draft|
|Location||New York City, New York|
|Presented by||Paul Salata|
|Currently held by||Justice Cunningham|
"Mr. Irrelevant" is the title bestowed each year upon the last pick of the annual National Football League draft. The first Mr. Irrelevant was Kelvin Kirk, pick number 487 of the 1976 draft. The current Mr. Irrelevant is tight end Justice Cunningham of the University of South Carolina Gamecocks, who was selected by the Indianapolis Colts as pick number 254 of the 2013 draft.
Irrelevant Week 
"Irrelevant Week" arose in 1976, when former Southern California and NFL receiver Paul Salata founded the week in Newport Beach, California. He continues to announce the final pick of the NFL draft to this day. During the summer after the draft, the new Mr. Irrelevant and his family are invited to spend a week in Newport Beach, 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.
Notable "winners" 
Several players who have been presented with this dubious honor have nevertheless succeeded in making the team that drafted them, with significant contributions on the field.
- Bill Kenney, who won the 1978 Mr. Irrelevant award, earned the award as the second-to-last selection when the last player taken suffered a back injury and failed to report to camp, and was even honored with an invitation to the Pro Bowl in 1983.
- Special teams player Marty Moore became the first Mr. Irrelevant to play in a Super Bowl, with the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXI.
- Jim Finn was the starting fullback for the New York Giants.
- 2008 winner David Vobora was a starting linebacker for the St. Louis Rams during the 2009 season.
- 2009 winner Ryan Succop became the starting kicker for the Kansas City Chiefs, and kicked a winning field goal to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers on November 22, 2009. He went on to tie the NFL record for highest field goal percentage by a rookie in a season with 86.2%, and also passed NFL Hall of Famer Jan Stenerud for most field goals made by a rookie in Chiefs history. Succop was awarded the Mack Lee Hill Award that year. He has been the starting kicker since his rookie season making 81.5% of his field goals and a perfect 100% on extra points.
One "Mr. Irrelevant" (who actually predated the award by nearly a decade) went on to a productive professional career in another sport. Jimmy Walker was the final pick in 1967 despite never having played college football. His main sport, however, was basketball, in which he was a consensus All-American and the nation's leading scorer as a senior at Providence. Walker was the first overall pick in the 1967 NBA Draft, and opted for a career in the NBA.
