The 2021 NFL Draft is officially a wrap, and once again it wraps on a fun note. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected linebacker Grant Stuard with the final pick of the draft, and he will go down in history as Mr. Irrelevant. A defensive player going last was installed by DraftKings Sportsbook at +100.

People won’t remember most of the day three picks of the 2021 NFL Draft, but there will be a soft spot for the underdog that is the final pick. Mr. Irrelevant has celebrated the final pick of the NFL Draft since 1976. Irrelevant Week is hosted every year in Huntington Beach, California in honor of the selection. The player and his family get a trip to Disneyland, a regatta, and even a fun trophy.

The odds are long for Stuard to have a significant NFL career, or even just make the Bucs roster this season. But it could be worse, and even if he doesn’t make the team he gets a pretty good few days to enjoy.
