He was taken with the 199th overall pick in the 2000 NFL Draft!
That’s right. 198 players were selected in that year’s draft class — including six other quarterbacks — before the New England Patriots took Brady in the 6th round. It’s safe to say it was the sleeper pick of the century.
Despite that, he succeed to be the player with the most appearances in Super Bowl.
Super Bowl LIII marked Tom Brady’s ninth career Super Bowl appearance, three more than any other player in NFL history. With the Patriots’ win, Brady broke his tie with pass rusher Charles Haley to win his NFL record sixth Super Bowl ring.
His 10th Super Bowl appearance was as the quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He led his team to win against the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 in Super Bowl LV. It was his 7th Super Bowl.
