...the New England Patriots selected Tom Brady.

It has often been noted that every NFL team (including the Patriots) passed on Tom Brady at least 5 times.

I was not following football very closely at the time.  Why was Brady drafted so late?

Nobody understood the power of the tuck rule at that time.

It's obvious He was drafted so late because he was yet to be taught how to play QB by teddy bruschi.

Times were different back then...a lot of teams were hesitant to draft a woman with a penis. We are all very accepting nowadays.

"Top notch stuff," indeed!  Such rollicking humor!  Just say "Brady" and "penis" falls from the lips of many TBD posters!

But does anyone have any football-related reason why Brady wasn't drafted until the 6th round?

cliff notes - good improvement as a senior and great intangibles but lacks size, strength, mobility...interestingly enough was drafted by Montreal Expos out of high school as a catcher

I agree that the "humor" about Brady and his disposition on this board is redundant. Hearing the same jokes over and over again isn't funny or creative.

Above is an article including a scouting report on Brady before the 2000 NFL draft. Buchsbaum, like most scouts, thought Brady lacked the build and arm strength to succeed in the NFL.

Edit: Below is some more information on how Brady was perceived in 2000.

It had something to do with him selling his soul to the devil. That is why God sent Tebow to try and save him.

I'm shocked that jelly Bills homers reacted this way in a Brady thread.

That article posted above gives a good explanation. Basically, Brady didn't perform that well in college and his arm wasn't big enough.

Interesting knowledge, I always had him pegged as somewhat of a catcher but never heard it confirmed.

I'm not offended. I just think that hearing the same jokes over and over again isn't funny.
