An old Tom Brady NFL Combine photo is going viral on social media as it celebrates its 20-year anniversary.
The 2020 NFL Combine is underway from Indianapolis, Indiana this week. Hundreds of football players from across the country have descended upon Lucas Oil Stadium to go through physical measurements, interviews and workouts.
Brady, 42, took part in the 2000 NFL Scouting Combine. He clearly didn’t impress that much, as he went No. 199 overall in the NFL Draft to New England (that worked out, obviously).
This shirtless photo of Brady weighing in at the NFL Combine might have been a reason why he lasted until the sixth round. Check it out:

That is the best quarterback in the history of the NFL, ladies and gentlemen. Clearly, you don’t need to look great with your shirt off in order to have success in the NFL.
Drew Brees also took to Instagram to share an old photo of himself at the NFL Combine.
“2001 Combine…19 years ago…lookin swole! Ha,” he wrote.
What quarterbacks from this year’s draft class will we be looking back at 20 years from now?
The NFL Combine will run through Monday and be televised on NFL Network.
