DAVID VOBORA: “MR. IRRELEVANT”

David Vobora, the last player taken in the 2008 NFL Draft, will start at middle linebacker for the St. Louis Rams this Sunday against Miami. He has spent most of the season on the Rams’ practice squad, but has now worked his way up into the St. Louis starting lineup. Vobora was the 252nd (and final) player taken this year out of the University of Idaho.

For that distinction, Vobora was awarded with the annual “Lowsman Trophy” award and was proclaimed the 33rd “Mr. Irrelevant.” Vobora is the first “Mr. Irrelevant” to start an NFL game in his rookie season since 1994. Newport Beach, CA in Orange County makes a BIG deal about the “Mr. Irrelevant” award every year. They have an entire week based around it. Vobora was given a parade and even got to go to Disneyland.
