Tom Brady has fitting message for NFL Draft prospects


Before Round 1 of the NFL Draft on Thursday night, Tom Brady delivered the perfect message for players hoping to hear their names called.

The Patriots quarterback, who was drafted in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft, reflected on his own draft experience while giving this year's draft hopefuls encouraging advice.

It isn't about draft position, it's about the effort put in once a team decides to take a chance on you, whenever that may be. If there's anyone who's living proof of that fact, it's Brady.

Only time will tell if another diamond in the rough (perhaps a future six-time Super Bowl champion?) will show up in this year's draft.
