Trey Quinn became Mr. Irrelevant 2018 when he was selected No. 256 overall in the NFL draft, making the leap from Southern Methodist University to the Washington Redskins.
As the last pick of the draft, Quinn will be invited to participate in the annual Irrelevant Week festivities. This year’s festivities are scheduled for June 15-18, at Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach, California.
Since 1976, the last player chosen in the NFL draft has been referred to as Mr. Irrelevant, thanks to Paul Salata, who came up with the offbeat idea of honoring the last man drafted by offering said individual a free trip to California, where he would be treated like the first player drafted.
Most of the players distinguished as such have failed to make their mark in the NFL, but there have been some notable exceptions. Among them is current Tennessee Titans placekicker Ryan Succop, who was Mr. Irrelevant 2009.
