DAVID VOBORA - 2008.jpeg


David Vobora, a linebacker out of the University of Idaho, was the 252th pick in the drafted, selected by St. Louis Rams. Vobora became the first Mr. Irrelevant to make the roster of the team that drafted him in the 2000s. When Vobora made his first career start at linebacker in the game against the Miami Dolphins, he was the first Mr. Irrelevant to start in a game during his rookie season since Marty Moore started four games for the New England Patriots in 1994. In September 2009, he was suspended for four games for violating the NFL’s performance enhancing substance policy. Vobora stated that he would sue the company that produced the supplement he took, because it contained substances that were not listed on the label. In June 2011, a federal judge ruled against the company and awarded Vobora $5.4 million. Vobora signed with the Seattle Seahawks in 2011, was released and is currently a free agent.
