why are NFL "Journey To Draft" athletes so surprised when they are drafted?

I don't know squat about football but I do enjoy watching the combines and those journey to draft videos but they kinda confuse me because the athletes when interviewed behind the scenes say their nervous they won't get drafted and their family is always praying as if the NFL just picks a random no good athlete to make those Journey to Draft videos. I mean they get all dressed up in a suit, and their family waits with baited breath as they wait for a NFL team to call them on stage to wear their hat and hold up their jersey. Like, not everyone is allowed to do that. So why is it such a shock, I feel like if you are featured in NFL and invited to the draft you already know you're gonna get drafted?
