Quarterback Chad Kelly was the last player taken in the 2017 NFL Draft, but with being selected last there comes some fame to that (learn more). In the Olympics, the marathon runner who crawls into the stadium, everyone remembers. It is the second to last guy no-one remembers. This year it was running back Matthew Dayes from NC State.

Matthew Dayes played for the NC State Wolfpack from 2013 to 2016. Over his college career he ran for 2, 856 yards for 5.2 yards per carry average and 34 TDs. He also caught 98 passes for 933 yards and six TDs.

Matthew Daynes was drafted by the Cleveland Browns. Matthew is 5’9” and 205 pounds. He ran the forty yard dash at the combine in 4.66 seconds. His predecessor from the previous, second to last pick, is Beau Sandland. Beau Sandland is tight end from Montana State. Last year he was a practice squad member for the Panthers and then the Packers. A player gets paid $6,900 per week on the practice squad, which adds up to $117,300 over the regular season. Players can, and often do, get paid more. Not too bad for being fresh out of college.
