We love stories of triumph and courage, because they make us believe in the resilience of the human spirit. The story of Zach Hodges and his dream of playing in the NFL is one such story.
Gerald Christian of the University of Louisville was the overall final pick of the 2015 NFL draft, a selection that earned him the "honor" of being named Mr. Irrelevant 2015. Christian, the Arizona Cardinal's tight end, is the 40th Mr. Irrelevant. The award dates back to 1976 and was created by former NFL player Paul Salata. We caught up with Christian to find out what it's like to be named Mr. Irrelevant, how he got here, and what's to come.
University of Louisville tight end Gerald Christian got more than he bargained for at this year’s NFL Draft.
