Get To Know the 2019 NFL Draft’s ‘Mr. Irrelevant’

Caleb Wilson achieved the status of Mr. Irrelevant, being drafted 254th in the 2019 NFL Draft. Wilson could have a lot more impact than most think and the Cardinals addressed a scheme need with another possible weapon.

The Arizona Cardinals had 11 total picks in the 2019 NFL Draft. Two of them were seventh-rounders and one was none other than Mr. Irrelevant, Caleb Wilson. This could be considered a hot take, steal or what have you, but this pick might be more relevant than most people think.

So who is Caleb Wilson?

Wilson played TE for the UCLA Bruins before electing to enter the NFL Draft pool following his redshirt junior season. He didn’t find the end zone a lot for the Bruins, scoring five total touchdowns with four in his final season, but was a big target. Standing at 6’4″ 240 lbs., Wilson hauled in 114 catches for 1675 yards, averaging just under 15 yards per reception.

As illustrated, Wilson got progressively better throughout his college career and has confidence he can give himself a chance in the NFL.

Even being at the butt of the draft, Wilson can at least say he got drafted as opposed to signing as a possible UDFA.

One final thing to note. Arizona actually addressed a need with this pick. As much of a joke surrounds the “Mr. Irrelevant” status, Wilson could seriously see some field time. He joins the likes of Ricky Seals-Jones, Darrell Daniels and Charles Clay.

Jones scored once last year and caught 34 passes for 343 yards. Clay has yet to play a game with Arizona, signed earlier this year, but brings about a veteran presence with years of experience with Miami and Buffalo. Daniels is a third-year pro, but only played in two games last season for the Cardinals, not recording any stats.

Looking at their production in the tight end spot, Wilson could definitely thrive or at least have Clay take him under his wing for future years.

Just think if the browns would have taken Josh Allen

Who have they beat?

It’s bad play calling it’s bad execution. Nick it’s 3 years of baker still not settling in and playing his game

After this year if baker doesn’t prove himself. Would you rather see the browns let him go and find a new QB in the draft?

Nick, you’re the only browns fan that I love❤️ next game will be PSU vs OSU❤️
