Tom Brady admits unfavorable scouting report ‘still gets me excited’


Tom Brady, as everyone knows by now, was selected in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft, and his scouting report is something he still uses for motivation.

Brady admitted it in a tweet Sunday when he reacted to an interview in which the scouting report was read to him.

“It still turns me on …” he wrote.

Brady was reacting to an NFL Films video of Steve Sabol reading the former New England Patriots quarterback what scouts were saying about his departure from Michigan.

“This is the draft report on you. And we condensed it just a little bit, and it basically says … Tom Brady, poor structure. That could be accurate,” Sabol commented. “Skinny. He lacks great physical stature and strength and is easily knocked down.”

Brady responded at the time, “That turns me on a bit because I’m thinking, you know, what the hell do these people know? That sounds like Joe Montana right there.”

TOM BRADY MORE INJURED DURING THE 2020 SEASON THAN SOME REALIZE: REPORT

Brady was the Patriots’ seventh pick in the draft. The team selected guard Adrian Klemm, running back JR Redmond, tackle Greg Randall, tight end Dave Stachelski, defensive tackle Jeff Marriott and defensive back Antwan Harris in front of him. None of the players the Patriots drafted before him played after the 2005 season. Patrick Pass, who was drafted in the seventh round, played until 2007.
