INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Justice Cunningham has a new title: Mr. Irrelevant.
 
Indianapolis selected the 6-foot-4, 264-pound tight end from South Carolina with the 254th and final pick in the NFL draft Saturday. Cunningham will be honored with a trip to Disneyland and the Irrelevant Week Parade in Newport Beach, Calif., this summer.
 
Paul Salada, who founded Irrelevant Week in 1976, made the announcement and again held up a blue-and-white Colts jersey this time with No. 254. Harnish was No. 253.
 
The Colts chose quarterback Chandler Harnish with the final pick in last year's draft. It's the first time a team has made the last selection of draft weekend in back-to-back years since Oakland in 2003 and 2004.

He's not the first Gamecock "Mr. Irrelevant." Kicker Ryan Succop got that honor several years ago when the Kansas City Chief drafted him.
