Tom Brady 2000 Draft Day Picks

Tom Brady was born on August 3, 1977 in San Mateo, California. He stands 6 foot 4 inches tall and weighs approximately 225 pounds. Although he is the perfect size for an NFL quarterback, Brady brings much more to the game than that. He is also capable of moving around in the pocket if need be, and of course his smarts are among the best in the game as well. With all of that in mind it is easy to see why Brady has become one of the best players in the NFL over the last few seasons.

After playing high school football in the state of California, Brady decided to take his game to the University of Michigan. Although he would have to sit on the bench his first two seasons, he made a name for himself soon enough. During the 1998 and 1999 seasons Brady started every game for the Wolverines. He made the All Big Ten team in both seasons, and was even the captain of the team as a senior. His leadership and determination went a long way in helping the Wolverines achieve success while he was running the offense.

Brady was drafted in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots. He was passed by time and time again by many teams, but soon enough he began to stake his revenge on them. After a slow rookie season, Brady stepped into the starting lineup in 2001; he has been there ever since. In 2001 he finished the season with 2,843 yards and 18 touchdowns.

During his time in the league Tom Brady has been named to the Pro Bowl Team four times, and has won three Super Bowls. Not only has Brady done a great job in making himself one of the best players in the game, but he has always done the same for his team as well.
