Tom Brady speaks with Bryce Young, C.J. Stroud, Anthony Richardson, and Will Levis

The top four quarterbacks selected in the 2023 NFL draft recently had a unique opportunity to speak with Tom Brady, the consensus greatest quarterback in pro football history. Bryce Young, C.J. Stroud, Anthony Richardson, and Will Levis attended a seminar that included Fanatics CEO Michael Rubin, rap superstar Travis Scott, and Brady himself.

Brady spoke specifically to the quarterbacks about taking things beyond wherever you were selected in a draft. Brady would know, as he was taken 199th overall in the sixth round of the 2000 draft, and things went pretty well for him after that.

“Going in the second round? In the end, that’s not really a big deal,” Brady told the young quarterbacks. “Going first overall? In the end, it’s not a big deal. It’s great — you’ve got opportunities, 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, right? 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 finished his career with seven Super Bowl wins, so one imagined that Young, Stroud, Richardson, and Levis were hanging on every word.
