With not much actual football content to discuss and the draft still nearly three weeks away, why not examine the roots of the motivation that prompted Tom Brady to become one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history?
Two months after showing up at the Scouting Combine like a middle-aged man who had rolled out of bed with a migraine and a full bladder, Brady was the 199th player taken in the 2000 draft. And ESPN soon will air a documentary entitled The Brady 6, which looks at the six quarterbacks drafted before Brady.
They were Chad Pennington (Jets, pick 18), Giovanni Carmazzi (49ers, pick 65), Chris Redman (Ravens, pick 75), Tee Martin (Steelers, pick 163), Marc Bulger (Saints, pick 168), and Spergon Wynn (Browns, pick 183).
The show debuts on ESPN next Tuesday, at 8:00 p.m. ET.
