The Life

Mr. Irrelevant DraftTracker: Mike Cerimele
ESPN The Magazine

Player: Mike Cerimele
Position: Fullback
School: Penn State
Vitals: 5'10", 235 pounds, 4.7 in the 40
Stats: Joe Pa's go-to guy on short yardage, Cerimele gained just 47 yards on 22 carries and caught nine passes for 61 yards.

Notes: Has all the makings of a Mr. I: big enough, fast enough and hard enough to tackle to warrant getting picked, but not quick, versatile or athletic enough to go early. Plus, if they're gonna take a flyer on a pick, scouts love to go for the Joe Lunchpail types -- the good, solid players from great programs. And a letter of recommendation from The Man himself doesn't hurt either: In 1999, Joe Pa called Cerimele the unsung hero of the team. "He blocks well and he's a tough runner," said the coach. "He's not much of a talker but he plays well and practices well and he's a heck of an all-around football player."
