Tight End Andy Stokes of William Penn was chosen with the last pick in the 7th round of the NFL Draft by the New England Patriots (255th overall). The player selected at this position bears the honor of carrying the title "Mr. Irrelevant" forever more.

Stokes will be honored by the former Mr. Irrelevants in Newport Beach, California. Appreciative of the honor, Stokes told the media, “I’m excited for that. I’m more excited to play football though.”

William Penn's head coach, Todd Hafner was proud of his former player. “Andy is very deserving of the honor of being drafted,” Hafner said. “He is a great person and a hard worker in addition to being a great football player."

The Patriots have typically drafted a tight end in the first-round using those opportunities to select Daniel Graham and Ben Watson.
