The Mr. Irrelevant fraternity has become one of the NFL's most light-hearted traditions as the title is awarded to the final player selected in each year's NFL Draft. However, predicting just who that player will be, or which position he plays, has proven a near-impossible task.
But that's not to say you can't already place a wager on the position of the 2019 NFL Draft's Mr. Irrelevant following the end of Thursday's first-round selections, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
Excluding the +1500 shot that we see a special teams selection with the final pick of this year's draft, the oddsmakers are currently offering equal odds between the 2019 Mr. Irrelevant proving to be a defensive or offensive prospect.
Three of the last four and six of the last 10 Mr. Irrelevants have been on the offensive side of the ball, with two tight ends, two wide receivers and two quarterbacks being taken with the last pick, among these last six prospects.
Last year's Mr. Irrelevant was also on the offensive side of the ball, as the Washington Redskins selected WR Trey Quinn from SMU with No. 256 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
As of Friday afternoon, the Arizona Cardinals currently own this year's Mr. Irrelevant pick at No. 254 overall. Although, given how many needs Arizona has on both sides of the ball, predicting this selection's position isn't going to come easy.
