2000. Tom Brady (Pick: Courtney Brown)
Can there be anyone else? The most famous sixth round pick in NFL history, 198 players — including six quarterbacks — were selected ahead of Tom Brady, before the New England Patriots took him. You’d be hard-pressed to make an argument against Brady being in the conversation for the greatest quarterback of all time, considering he’s won five Super Bowls and four NFL MVP awards.
Fellow 2000 NFL Draft classmate Brian Urlacher is already in the Hall of Fame, and it’s just a matter of time before Brady finds himself enshrined there as well.
