Video: Tom Brady remembers 2000 NFL Draft

Tom Brady sits down with ESPN and reminisces about his long wait to hear his name in the 2000 NFL draft. He gets emotional while relaying the story even though it’s been 11 years since he’s been drafted. I’m no Tom Brady fan, nor am I a Patriots fan but I’m a fan of the story. He was picked in a round where the players chosen make the practice team at best, now he’s the highest paid quaterback in the NFL. You see the Quarterbacks picked ahead of him? Chris Redmen, Tee Martin, Chad Pennington, Marc Bulger and Spergon Wynn. Yea, I never heard of Spergon Wynn before either. For Brady to go from that emotional low, just happy he doesn’t have to sell life insurance, to being the face for a billion dollar franchise is remarkable. I’m glad for that boy — cheers to success!
