Best NFL Players not Drafted in 1st RoundThis list is for the diamonds in the rough. NO 1st round picks are listed here.
The Top Ten
Greatest QB ever to play the game of Football. As of 2013 he has led the New England Patriots to 5 Super Bowls, winning 3. He was the Super Bowl MVP in 2 of the 3 Super Bowl Wins. He has been elected to 8 Pro Bowls and holds the NFL Record for most TD passes in a single season with 50. He has the most Playoff wins out of any player ever with 17. He has the longest consecutive winning streak ever with 21 consecutive games. He led his team to the first undefeated season since the institution of 16 regular season games. He has won 2 NFL MVP awards and was Athlete of the Year in 2007. He is also the first QB to lead his team to 10 Divisional Titles. He has countless other awards and titles but this is getting too long. All of this and he was drafted in the 6TH ROUND!?
Tom Brady is definitely the greatest QB to ever play the game of football. Sure Montana has 4 SBs, but he also had Jerry Rice at his disposal. Brady on the other hand only Randy Moss for about a season abd some change. Let's face it, all stats aside, Brady could've easily been at least a 5x SB winner, at least! His legend continues to grow as we going into the 2014 season in a few months. Without question, Brady IS the greatest of all time.
As with many competitors. Brady has shown. His true spirit with a great organasation. A gem like a Drew Brees, Tony Romo (undrafted) also come to mind. But yea Brady may be bigest sleeper ever. Not even starter in coledge? The qualities of a great Qb are not measured by height, arm strength or speed in the 40. All help, but look at this list and you see leaders with the it...!
One of the best clutch abs of all time and shows that he's not a one trick pony by boasting a great regular season and playoff record. Can put up huge numbers when given good receivers 2007-2012 and can win even with scrubs around him 2001-2006 and 2013. Truly one of the greats
Apparently, in scouting reports he was called "cocky" and that "he lacked the tools for a NFL quarterback". Well, here we are in 2017, still gazing at his achievements, and, hey, I know it was the draft stock, but, really? Third round?!
I don't like the 49ers but how is joe Montana not number 1?
greatest qb ever and in the 3rd round?! its a no brainer
4 superbowls, enough said.
Drafted by the falcons, traded to green-bay sat behind " the majic man" and got a lucky starting spot and took the green bay packers to the first Super Bowl since 67 got into a car accident, rehabbed and held more passing records then any qb in nfl history definitely the greatest at his position no doubt!
Didn't pronounce name right on draft day.
he's the greatest football player of allllllllllll tiimmmeee. period.
Drafted in the third round.
Should have been number one
So underrated now he's actually playing really well with Arizona this year. TD should not be ahead of him and his career was cut short so what if he had stayed healthy he might have been the all time leading rusher he didn't and now he's a analyst on the nfl network. I'm sick of people and there stupid "what if"s it didn't happen get over it.
Former Hyvee stocker and 2 time MVP
Terrrel Davis was one of the few RB's to get over 2000 yrds in a season ever , he may go to the football hall of fame!
Thurman Thomas (2nd round) above TD (6th round)? TD could be a #1 and still be ahead of Thomas. Buffalo 0-4 in SBowls... :).LMAO
in my oppinion if his career wasnt cut short he would be the alll time leading rusher
Greatest Rushing QB of all time, and has most TD passes in a Super Bowl (6)
26 sacks in 14 games, anchored the rams defense, played for so long... from a 14th round draft pick. whoever votes on these must not know about football before the 90's.
this guy invented the word sack, how is he not in the top 5? he had 26 sacks in a 14 game season. this list is awful.
Actually Ray Guy is the only punter ever drafted in the first round. (not counting two-way players or kicker hybrids)
Bro this guy is beast he has NEVER gotten a punt for a TD in his whole career!
He's pretty big around Seattle now
No one had beter hands then Steve Largent.
I’m a 49ers fan and I’m still Steve Largent’s #1 fan
possobly the best kicker ever has made more clutch kicks in games not only games but super bowls
Really good quarterback was a 3rd round pick
3rd round pick to super bowl champ in only 2 years
Best kick returner EVER! how is he not on this list? he already nearly broke the most kick returns in a career record, in only 3 years! the current record holder played for at LEAST 7 years
He is really good and was a 5th round pick
He is better then tom brady
Undrafted, need I say more
Staubach was drafted round 10 pick pick 129 and is in the hall of fame. He made it to six pro bowls and was a a two time super bowl.
