This Is Where The 6 Quarterbacks Drafted Before Tom Brady Are Today

by Adam Silvers

With the 199th overall pick in the 2000 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots selected Tom Brady from the University of Michigan. And what a steal it was.

Since his debut with the Patriots in 2000, 37-year-old Brady has won four Super Bowls, three Super Bowl MVPs and two regular season MVPs.

He's been selected to 10 Pro Bowls and was named the AP Male Athlete of the Year in 2007.

He's also married to the smoking-hot Gisele Bündchen.

Basically, Brady has won at life in every aspect.

But, what about the quarterbacks who were among the 198 players drafted before Tom Brady that year?

Well, those dudes' careers didn't pan out quite as well as they might've hoped.

From Giovanni Carmazzi to Tee Martin, here's how things turned out for the six quarterbacks drafted before Tom Brady in the 2000 NFL Draft.

1. Chad Pennington was selected by the New York Jets as the first quarterback in 2000.


Pennington played eight years in New York and three in Miami, and although he made four career playoff appearances, he failed to reach the elite level.

He now coaches middle school football at The Lexington School.


2. Giovanni Carmazzi was taken 65th overall by the San Francisco 49ers.


Carmazzi never played in an NFL game, but did make the 49ers roster as a backup QB. He was out of the NFL by 2001. #lifegoals

He's now a yoga-practicing goat farmer in California.

3. Chris Redman was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens as the last quarterback of the third round.


Redman spent eight years in the NFL, but never started more than six games in a season. And while his career record of 4-8 left plenty to be desired, he did earn a Super Bowl ring during his NFL tenure.

He's now a business development officer for Maxus Healthcare, and recently gave his take on Deflategate.


4. Tee Martin was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers with the 163rd overall pick in 2000.


Martin would play just three NFL games, none of which he started. He would go on to lead the Rhein Fire to the 2002 World Bowl, but his team fell 26-20 to the Berlin Thunder.

He's now the wide receiver coach for the USC Trojans.


5. Marc Bulger was drafted by New Orleans Saints just five picks later.


Of the six quarterbacks drafted before Tom Brady, Marc Bulger had the most successful NFL career by far. He played eight seasons for the Rams and was twice selected to the Pro Bowl.

He now runs the Marc Bulger Foundation, and competed on a golf show called "Big Break NFL."


6. Spergon Wynn was selected by the Cleveland Browns in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft.


Wynn only played two NFL seasons and started just three games. He has one career touchdown pass to go with seven interceptions.

He's currently a broker for Amerex Energy Services.
