Prior to the NFL Draft on Thursday night, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady took the opportunity to remind everyone that he had moved to the sixth round in 2000.

& # 39; Good luck to everyone waiting to hear their name called tonight, & # 39; Brady wrote hours for the first round. & # 39; Remember that there is more than just going in the first round! & # 39;

Brady, a quadruple Super Bowl MVP, added three more tweets to drive his point home:

& # 39; or the second … & # 39;

& # 39; or the third ….. & # 39;

& # 39; you get it & # 39;

A total of 198 players were taken over by Brady in the NFL Draft, including famous NFL busts such as top choice Courtney Brown and former Peter Warrick, the star of Florida State, who finished fourth.

Although he played for a large collegiate program in Michigan, Brady faced the highly regarded two-sport star Drew Henson, who was also a minor baseball prospect for the New York Yankees. (Brady himself was also selected in the MLB Draft, but never played in the minors)

In the end Brady won the job, but he failed to make a name for himself and entered the NFL Draft 2000 as a relatively unknown.

Aggravating things were the less-than-impressive physical properties of Brady, which were encapsulated in his infamous shirtless choice of him in the draw combination.

& # 39; If you looked at him, you would think, & # 39; oh, this guy won't do what he did in the competition & # 39 ;, said former rival and New York Giants defending Michael Strahan on ABC said. & # 39; It wasn't Tom Brady's most flattering look. & # 39;

Brady served as a backup for starter Drew Bledsoe during his rookie season. Then, in 2001, an injury to Bledsoe Brady inflicted the starting role that he has yet to give up.

That season ended with an unlikely Super Bowl run and an upsurge from the heavily favored St. Louis Rams when the Patriots won their first Super Bowl title.

Brady and the Patriots have since returned to the Super Bowl eight times and have won six Lombardi trophies.

In 2018, Brady ended with 4,355 passing yards, 29 touchdown passes and only 11 interceptions.
