Title: The Brady 6

Released: 2011

Plot: He went on to be one of the greatest American football players of his generation, and arguably of all time, but when a young Tom Brady was drafted in 2000, 198 other players were picked ahead of him, including six quarterbacks.

This ESPN film looks at that infamous draft, Brady’s rise and the fortunes of the “Brady 6″: Chad Pennington, Giovanni Carmazzi, Chris Redman, Tee Martin, Marc Bulger and Spergon Wynn.

What the critics said: “I’ve seen plenty of excellent productions from NFL Films over the years.  Tonight, I’ve seen one of the best yet.  And that’s saying a lot.” (Mike Florio, NBC Sports)

Random YouTube comment: “Tom Brady is the reason why i love football. He’s been my hero since I was 10.” (DerezzedFall)
