The term "Mr. Irrelevant" might sound like an insult, but to Chandler Harnish, it represents a dream come true. The Indianapolis Colts selected Harnish with the 253rd pick (also the last pick) in the NFL Draft on Saturday night, making Harnish the newest "Mr. Irrelevant." The title is given annually to the last player selected in the draft.

Along with the opportunity to play for an NFL team, there is a lot of publicity associated with being Mr. Irrelevant. Harnish will visit Disneyland, as well as appear in the Irrelevant Week parade in Newport Beach, California.

But Harnish grew up in Indianapolis, and as a huge fan of the Colts franchise, so he was just excited to be a part of an NFL team, no less the one that he grew up cheering for.
