Tom Brady shares message to top quarterbacks selected in 2023 NFL draft

Tom Brady met the first four selected quarterbacks in this year's NFL draft as the young talents received an inspirational message from the former seven-time Super Bowl champion Fanatics CEO Michael Rubin hosted a lunch at his house, which was attended by Brady, as well the top four selected quarterbacks in the 2023 NFL draft - Bryce Young, CJ Stroud, Anthony Richardson and Will Levis.

Levis, who was expected to be a first-round pick, was selected early in the second round as the 33rd overall pick by the Tennessee Titans. "Going in the second round. In the end, that's not really that big of a deal," Brady told Levis, per CBS Sports.

Brady's advice for Young

With the first overall pick in this past NFL draft, the Caroline Panthers selected Young. "Going first overall in the end, it's not a big deal. It's great! You got an opportunity. You're probably going to be paid more than anyone for a time period.

But I was drafted 199 and I just outlasted everybody. There's another me back there. So how do I keep my edge on everybody? I had to keep working. I didn't go, 'Hey, I'm good. I won three Super Bowls, I'm good,'" Brady told Young.

In the 2000 NFL draft, Brady was famously selected in the sixth round as the 199th overall pick. The rest is history as Brady became one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. Also, Brady is considered by many the greatest player in NFL history.

During his career, Brady won seven Super Bowl rings - which is more than any other player in NFL history. Brady proved that you don't have to be a top pick in order to become an all-time great - you just need to work hard and do everything you can to put yourself in the best possible position to succeed.
