Three of these quarterbacks were the first picks in their respective drafts and went on to have Hall of Fame careers. Four were middle of the first round. Brett Favre was a second round pick, Fran Tarkenton a third pick (the leagues had not merged yet and there were less teams period), Tom Brady was a sixth round pick, and Warren Moon was undrafted. In fact Warren Moon played in the CFL for five season before coming to the NFL.

What does all this mean? It means the experts get it wrong a lot, although anyone would have been hard pressed to justify picking Tom Brady high up. It also means hard work and persistence is more important in the NFL, then getting drafted early. Tom Brady being a great example of this.
