"I'm happy to be wanted by a team, and I'm happy to be an Indianapolis Colt because that's been my favorite team all the way through," Harnish, an Indiana native, told local reporters on a conference call, according to The Associated Press.
According to our research, Harnish was the Mid-American Conference Offensive Player of the Year in 2011, leading his team in both rushing and passing. Harnish actually was the leading rushing QB in the country last season. Be afraid, Mr. Luck. Be very afraid.
In what has become an NFL draft tradition, Paul Salata -- founder of "Irrelevant Week" -- announced the final pick of the draft. If he so chooses, Harnish will be the guest of honor during a week-long celebration in Newport Beach, Calif. A parade, trophy and gifts are involved. This actually happens.
Salata, who had a brief NFL career in the 1950s, works under the motto of "doing something nice for no reason." He might have faced some competition for relevance himself this year, but Salata remains one of the draft's most enduring figures.
