 ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -Mr. Irrelevant Ramzee Robinson, the last player selected in the NFL draft, agreed to a three-year deal with the Detroit Lions.
Robinson agreed in principle to the deal on Thursday, his agent Andrew Benedict said Friday.
The 5-foot-10, 186-pound cornerback from Alabama became the 23rd player to be recognized as Mr. Irrelevant. He was the 255th selection in the seventh round of the April draft, the last of Detroit's eight picks.
The 23-year-old Robinson started 36 of 50 games with the Crimson Tide. He finished his career with 148 tackles - 100 solo - 3.5 tackles for loss and two forced fumbles. He had a touchdown, broke up 22 passes and had four interceptions for 96 yards in returns.
Critics cite his small size and lack of NFL speed - he ran a 4.52-second 40-yard dash. But his ability to play cornerback, nickel back and on special teams, coupled with his work ethic, may give him a shot at the practice squad if not the active roster.
Robinson expects to sign the contract early next week, Benedict said.
Messages seeking comment were left Friday with the Lions.
