Belichick-Era Patriots Top 10 Successes #1

Name: Tom Brady

College: Michigan

Drafted: 6th Round, 199th Overall, 2000

Position: Quarterback

Years with Team: 11

Where is he now? New England Patriots Starting Quarterback

Comments: Is an explanation even necessary?  Tom Brady, found in the sixth round of the 2000 draft, is the consensus greatest player in Patriots history.  He's led the Patriots to three Super Bowl victories.  He's led the team to an undefeated regular season.  He's won two Super Bowl MVP's and two regular season MVP's.  He holds numerous individual NFL records and has helped the team reach numerous league records.  Without any doubt, Tom Brady is the greatest draft success in Bill Belichick's drafting era, the Patriots drafting history, and very likely the greatest success of all-time in the NFL Draft, considering the position he was taken at.
