Every year, one NFL player has the dubious distinction to be the last player picked in the NFL draft. Dubbed "Mr. Irrelevant," this player receives a variety of nominal gifts during Irrelevant Week, held in Newport Beach, Calif. The tongue in cheek event raises money for local charities, as well as providing a nice weekend for Mr. Irrelevant. In the third installment of the Draft Dose series, we examine how the five most recent Mr. Irrelevants have fared on the field.

Tim Toone (2010, Detroit Lions)

Toone, a wide receiver out of Weber State, was a final cut by the Lions prior to the start of the season. Toone was a practice-squad fixture throughout the campaign, and was signed to a future contract on Jan. 5.

Ryan Succop (2009, Kansas City Chiefs)

Succop, a placekicker out of South Carolina, secured the Chiefs' PK job out of training camp and has held on to it ever since. Succop made 25-of-29 field-goal attempts in his rookie season, and he followed that up by hitting 20-of-26 attempts for the AFC West champs in 2010.

David Vobora (2008, St. Louis Rams)

A linebacker out of Idaho, Vobora has been a contributor for the Rams in each of his three seasons. He has played in 26 games the past two seasons, and has 16 career starts, tallying 97 career tackles and two sacks in his career so far. Vobora gets our vote for best Mr. Irrelevant.

Ramzee Robinson (2007, Detroit Lions)

Robinson, a cornerback from Alabama, bounced from the Lions to the Eagles to the Browns from 2007-09. He played in 26 games and recorded 36 tackles, but wasn't able to crack a roster in 2010 after being cut by the Redskins prior to the season.

Kevin McMahan (2006, Oakland Raiders)

A receiver out of Maine, McMahan has bounced around various practice squads since being drafted. He has spent time with the Raiders, Colts, Giants, Chiefs, and Panthers, but never recorded any regular-season stats.
