Drew Brees

This guy is a pretty remarkable story. He was a second round pick, top of the second round if I recall, by the Chargers. He was a very good QB in college, but is only six feet tall and when he came out, you had to be at least two inches taller than that for scouts to really take you serious as a NFL QB. Further, he suffered on some poor Charger teams and SD ended up with the top pick of the draft with Eli sitting there. Denver, the previous year, had sacked Brees in the final game of the year and dislocated his throwing shoulder, throwing doubt into Brees. So SD selected Eli, ended up trading him as Eli didn't want to go there, for Rivers, and then let Brees go. Now Brees has only the one SB trophy, so far, but has prolific passing numbers. Even without the multiple trophies, which I think you need for consideration for the best ever, he will be considered one of the best to play the game.
