Tom Brady: He has been known as one of the most dominant QB's over the years. But what many fail to realize is that he was a sixth rounder. 

Yes, a sixth rounder. After i saw some film of Mike Teel playing, I realized this guy may very well be the next Tom Brady and here is why:


Type of Of Offense- They both played in a east coast offense in college an looked very similar in many ways.

Arm Strength- Both don't have great arms, although I have to give the edge to Tom Brady if we were settling who had the better arm. Mike Teel had targets to throw to and had reliable ones too.  

Accuracy- When we Talk accuracy, I would give Mike Teel the edge, but both have great sure-handed targets to throw to, so I wouldn't be surprised if Tom Brady had a higher completion PCT.

Mobility- Mike Teel is obviously the more mobile QB, but when looking at film it looks like he is much better in the pocket and the reason he was so mobile is the play calling done by the head coach.

Bottom line is that if Mike Teel can get a few chances to start in his second year or so, I see a future stud. I'm not talking 51 TDs, but he should put up good numbers such as 25 TDs.
