The 254th and final pick of the 2013 NFL Draft, better known as the "Mr. Irrelevant" pick, is Justice Cunningham, tight end from South Carolina.
No, Cunningham does not fill a need. In fact, tight end is the most stocked position on the Indianapolis Colts. However, Cunningham brings more size (6'3, 258 lb.) to the position. He caught 23 passes for 324 yards for the Gamecocks last season.
Who knows? Maybe he'll contribute on special teams.
And with that, the 2013 NFL Draft has concluded. Congratulations to all the prospects who were drafted.
Now comes the frenzied period that is teams looking to sign collegiate free agents who were not drafted. In many ways, getting good players in this new wave of free agency is as critical as the draft itself. Just ask Colts inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman and wide receiver Griff Whalen. Both were never drafted, and Freeman led the Colts in tackle last season.
