Irrelevant Week -- an annual slate of festivities honoring the last pick in the NFL Draft -- got underway on Monday in Orange County, as organizers and fans are feting this year's Mr. Irrelevant, South Carolina kicker Ryan Succop, the Kansas City Chiefs' selection with the 256th and final pick in April's Draft.

The Mr. Irrelevant title and weeklong celebration are widely known around the sports world, but what most don't know is that the week was founded by and continues to be spearheaded by former USC football player Paul Salata, who was a defensive end for the Trojans in 1944-47.

Irrelevant Week is in its 34th year, and the event has raised more than $1 million for charity since its launch in 1976.
