For every Tom Brady, there are hundreds of Todd Husaks.
Husak was the first quarterback taken after the New England Patriots selected Brady in the 2000 NFL draft. He spent four years bouncing around with five different teams—in both the NFL and in Europe—before returning to Stanford, his alma mater, to coach and eventually work in broadcasting.
Today, he manages an office of a large commercial real estate services firm and does color commentary for Stanford football broadcasts.
Successful in life? Certainly. But Husak, and many late-round picks, will never taste any bit of the NFL success that Brady has managed.
In 2013, we were told this was a draft for foundational players more than superstars. This was supposed to be a draft full of depth, but light on elite talent up top. So, it stands to reason that this year—more so than others—we should see our fair share of impact players from the later rounds.
