INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Justice Cunningham has a new title: Mr. Irrelevant.

Indianapolis selected the 6-foot-4, 264-pound tight end from South Carolina with the 254th and final pick in the NFL draft Saturday. Cunningham will be honored with a trip to Disneyland and the Irrelevant Week Parade in Newport Beach, Calif., this summer.

Paul Salada, who founded Irrelevant Week in 1976, made the announcement and again held up a blue & white Colts jersey this time with No. 254. Harnish was No. 253.

The Colts chose quarterback Chandler Harnish with the final pick in last year's draft. It's the first time a team has made the last selection of draft weekend in back-to-back years since Oakland in 2003 and 2004.
