Before the NFL Draft, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady shared a good luck message over Instagram to all the 2019 college prospects.
“Good luck to all the players eager to have their name called at the @nfl draft. Remember it’s a marathon, not a sprint. Practice good habits, on and off the field, day after day, and you can accomplish your dreams. This is a special time, but you’re only at the starting line. The real work starts next week, when the cameras stop, and nobody is watching. You wake up every day to decide what you want to become! What better of an opportunity is that? You have to earn it, EVERY DAY!”
Brady later poked fun at his selection on Twitter while also providing additional encouragement for players selected in later rounds.
