Tom Brady's old combine video wasn't particularly impressive

Monday February 16th, 2015

With Tom Brady having won his fourth Super Bowl title with the New England Patriots, the chorus of people calling him the best quarterback in the NFL has grown much louder. But there were very few people predicting such things from Brady after the 2000 NFL combine.

The NFL Network recently posted some clips of Brady at the NFL's annual pre-draft showcase and they are not exactly jaw dropping.

In Brady's defense the tests shown rely mainly on speed, which his own father admits is not exactly his strong suit.

Another wonderful treat in the video is the clothes the players wear. Players in 2000 were running around in a T-shirt and khaki shorts, while today's players are performing their workouts dressed in futuristic body suits. - Brendan Maloy
