An annual tradition and nickname bestowed upon the draft's final selection in the seventh and last round, "Mr. Irrelevant" has become an anticipated pick, just as much for the pageantry as the conclusion of the event.
Unfortunately, "Mr. Irrelevant" hasn't translated all that much into underdog success for its recipients.
However, Arizona and Wilson might well alter that history.
The 6-foot-4, 235-pound tight end is coming off a huge season for the Bruins in which he tallied 60 catches for 965 yards -- a phenomenal 16.1 yards per grab -- and four touchdowns.
The most successful of the last-drafted bunch are arguably defensive back Michael Green (2000, Chicago Bears), who played eight NFL seasons and was a three-year starter for the Bears, and kicker Ryan Succop (2009, Kansas City Chiefs), who is currently the Titans kicker and helped announce the pick of Wilson on the Nashville podium.
While there's certainly no guarantee of playing time for Wilson or even a roster spot, it does come with the pomp and circumstance of a week in sunny Newport Beach, Calif. Traditionally, as part of "Irrelevant Week," the draftee enjoys a trip to Disneyland, a regatta, a golf tournament, a roast and a ceremony in which he is awarded the Lowsman Trophy -- which is the opposite of the Heisman Trophy and depicts a player fumbling.
Thus, Wilson will stay put in Southern California for a bit before heading to Arizona in hopes of becoming the last pick catching passes from the first pick.
