Not that you would ever forget – mainly because Brady won’t ever let you forget – he was not taken until the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft. His draft position is a chip on his shoulder that Brady is going to carry until the day he dies.

Regardless of that though, he is also one of the NFL’s all time greats already – and if not for an injury to Drew Bledsoe, who knows if we would have ever heard of Tommy Terrific.

There is no denying Brady’s greatness. In his 15 season (so far) run with the Patriots, Brady has thrown for more than 53,000 yards, is fifth on the league’s all time passing yardage list – nipping at the heels of Drew Brees, has thrown 392 touchdowns, and has a career 63.5 completion percentage.

More than that, Brady is a four time Super Bowl Champion, a three time Super Bowl MVP, a two time NFL MVP, a ten time Pro Bowler, was twice named first team All Pro, is a two time NFL Offensive Player of the year, and a three time AFC Offensive Player of the Year. He also married Gisele Bundchen which pretty much guarantees him to be a lock for the Hall of Fame.

He’s been embroiled in his share of controversies – Tuck Game, Spygate, Deflategate, but none of that is likely to matter much to the Hall of Fame voters once his playing days are over.

Not too bad for a sixth round pick whose rookie season was nothing special at all.
