Tom Brady is a lot of things. He's a six-time Super Bowl champion, a three-time NFL MVP, a 14-time Pro Bowler and he's widely believed to be the greatest quarterback of all-time. And those accomplishments have also made him the biggest steal in the history of the NFL Draft.
Despite eventually going on to be known as the GOAT, Brady was not a highly-touted prospect when he entered the league. Famously, he was the 199th overall pick in the 2000 NFL Draft, coming off the board in the sixth round. Let's take a look at the quarterbacks that were drafted ahead of Brady – a group that has since earned the moniker "The Brady Six."
