Don’t sleep on sixth-round picks. That was Antonio Brown’s message Sunday night on Twitter.
Brown, the 195th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, tweeted a photo with legendary New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who was the 199th overall pick in the 2000 NFL Draft. Both are enormous stars and both were picked near the end of their respective drafts. Sometimes, the round is just a number.

Sometimes, diamonds in the rough are discovered in the final rounds. That’s why all draft picks are important. Brown and Brady are an incredible example of what can be found in the later rounds of the NFL draft.
