Lots of people look at Tom Brady as a college player or in pictures or video from the NFL Combine (see below), and they laugh at the scrawny guy who looks like an un-athletic tenth grader running through agility drills. The thing that people often forget is that when he played quarterback for Michigan and when he was going through QB-specific drills, he actually looked pretty darn good. It was only when asked to run around cones and run 40 yards in a straight line when he looked particularly awkward. It just goes to show that you don’t have to be a great all-around athlete to be a professional athlete. I don’t want to watch C.C. Sabathia run the 40-yard dash or see B.J. Raji throw a curveball, but they’re both good at what they do.
