Tom Brady’s Resume Before He Was Drafted into the NFL May Surprise You

Posted on

Before there was Tom Brady, one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL history, there was Tom Brady, the college graduate looking for a job.

Brady, the quarterback for the New England Patriots, released a picture of his old resume onto social media a few years ago.

The resume, which was then put together by a 22-year old Brady, revealed that the athlete had graduated from the University of Michigan in 1999 with a 3.3 GPA out of 4.0.

The resume also lists that he was a summer intern assisting a senior sales broker in 1998 and 1999 at Merrill Lynch in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Brady’s other jobs included a park service manager at Ann Arbor Summer Festival in 1996.

“Found my old resume! Really thought I was going to need this after the 5th round,” Brady posted on Facebook in 2014.

Brady at the time may have thought that he would need this resume, as the New England Patriots did not choose him until their sixth-round pick in the 2000 NFL draft. He was the 199th overall pick that year.

It was in 2017 that Oliver Owens, the boss of Brady at Merrill Lynch had said the future NFL player stood out. “He worked hard,” he told Fox News at the time. He added, “You know, he never complained. He was always on time. He never left early. You know, just had a great attitude.”

Today at 42, Brady is currently the third-oldest player in the NFL with 20 seasons completed. He has been regarded as the greatest of all time.
