Detroit Lions make Tim Toone Mr. Irrelevant

With the 255th and final pick in the 2010 NFL draft, the Detroit Lions selected wide receiver Tim Toone of Weber State, making him the 2010 Mr. Irrelevant.

Toone said prior to the draft that he wasn’t expecting to be selected.

I’m just expecting to sign somewhere as a free agent,” Toone said last week. “Anything better than that is a bonus. I know a team’s going to take a chance and I’m going to work hard and make their team.”

Toone will need to be a contributor on special teams to make the Lions’ roster, and the highlight of his college career was a 90-yard punt return against Northern Arizona.

As Mr. Irrelevant, he will preside over Irrelevant Week in Newport Beach, California, and be awarded the Lowsman Trophy. The pick was announced by Paul Salata, the 83-year-old former NFL player who first came up with the Mr. Irrelevant idea.
