Contest seeks entries for Mr. Irrelevant

April 8, 2013 at 3:04 PM

NEW YORK, April 8 (UPI) -- It's an NFL draft punchline: The 254th selection, Mr. Irrelevant because he's the last guy picked in New York. Predict it and it might be more, well, relevant.

A group called Irrelevant Week that supports charities for underserved and disabled youths is sponsoring a contest, challenging draft enthusiasts to predict who will earn the title of Mr. Irrelevant 2013 at this year's NFL draft, April 25 to 27 in New York City.

Irrelevant Week said a winner will be selected from correct entries, made online at www.tinyurl.com/lastpick. The winner will receive a slew of prizes including VIP access to a party thrown in Mr. Irrelevant's honor.

Proceeds from the contest benefit Special Olympics Southern California.

In 2012, the Indianapolis Colts selected Northern Illinois University quarterback Chandler Harnish last -- and Harnish wound up making the Colts 54-man roster as a backup.
