Heading into his third year at college, Brady had to fight to get the role of starting quarterback, but succeeded. In his final year, he completed 180 passes from 295 attempts, achieving 2,217 yards. This work earned him an All-Big Ten honorable mention in the 1998 and 1999 seasons.

Brady entered the NFL Draft in 2000 and was selected in the 6th round by the New England Patriots as the 199th overall pick. This demonstrates how lightly Brady was regarded after completing his college career.
