NFL Draft Results: Demarco Sampson Is Cardinals 'Mr. Irrelevant'

"Mr. Irrelevant" is the ignoble title bestowed on the final pick of the NFL Draft. The Arizona Cardinals don't have that final pick, Houston does. The Cardinals have selected DeMarco Sampson with the 249th pick of the draft which makes him just five spots earlier than the Mr. Irrelevant, Cheta Ozougwu.

Sampson is the eight player selected by the Cardinals in the 2011 NFL Draft so he does earn the team Mr. Irrelevant title. The wide receiver from San Diego State will turn 26 during his rookie season (assuming he makes the team). He had extra years of college eligibility granted due to missed seasons due to injury.

Sampson missed the 2006 and 2007 seasons due to a  foot injury and was kicked out of school for poor grades in spring 2008. In his best season, 2010, Sampson had 67 catches, 1,220 yards, and 8 TDs for the Aztechs.

Good luck, Sampson, at least expectations are low.

And so concludes the 2011 NFL Draft. Stay tuned for more analysis and discussion in the coming days.
