People talk about how this guy can't be good because they where drafted in the 4th or the 5th or the 6th ,the 7th or undrafted. well isn't it time we stop judging player by where they are drafted. Miles Austin was undrafted out of Monmouth and now he is the Cowboys best receiver. Tony Romo was undrafted out of Eastern Illinois and now some people are calling him a future hall of famer. Wes Welker was undrafted out of Texas Tech and is one of the best receivers in the league and one of Tom Bradys most important weapons. Kurt Warner was undrafted out of Northern Iowa and maybe one of the best QBs to play the game. Tom Brady was a sixth round pick out of michigan and now his name speaks for itself. the point is that it's not where your drafted or even if you are drafted it is about how you play. If you see a player on your team that was drafted real low in the draft or an undrafted player on your favorite team don't take them for granted. Because that player could be the future of your franchise!
