17 years ago today, Bill Belichick turned 48 years old, and he celebrated it by making one of the best selections in NFL draft history.
The New England Patriots drafted a QB in the 6th round that others described as: slow, talent less, a “practice squad QB”, and a QB with mediocre arm strength. But the rest of the NFL teams failed to look deep into one thing, his heart and determination. The Patriots drafted Brady with the 199th pick in the NFL draft and the rest is history. Coincidentally enough, like this year, the New England Patriots also didn’t draft in the first round. Happy birthday to Bill Belichick, may you smile once today!
