The NFL's scouting combine is taking place in Indianapolis as I write this, which is always an exciting thing to watch if you're a fan of scouting players who may end up playing for your favorite team.
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, Tom Brady participated in this same combine, and he didn't fare well.
You know the rest.
In honor of the combine, Brady posted a picture of himself in the combine shirt he wore 17 years ago and recapped what scouts said about him at the time. It's a pretty sweet picture with a pretty sweet caption.
I found my combine shirt from 17 years ago and it got me thinking. This is what they said about me then..... Poor build, Skinny, Lacks great physical stature and strength, Lacks mobility and ability to avoid the rush, Lacks a really strong arm, Can’t drive the ball downfield, Does not throw a really tight spiral, System-type player who can get exposed if forced to ad lib, Gets knocked down easily As @edelman11 always reminds me ... "You can prove em right or you can prove em wrong!" Good luck to all of you this weekend!!
Pick No. 199. Never forget.
