TOM Brady has sent some words of wisdom to NFL contender Will Levis following his draft-day heartache.
Quarterback Levis, 23, made it to the second round because he was widely considered a first-round candidate.
He had to wait until day two of the 2023 NFL Draft before the Tennessee Titans selected him with their 33rd overall pick.
Brady, 45, slipped by the sixth round and was the No. 199 overall pick before the New England Patriots selected him in 2000.
And he’s won seven Super Bowls — six with the Patriots and one with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Brady is widely regarded as the greatest football player of all time after an incredible 22-year career.
And he sent Levis a touching message about the disappointment at the NFL Draft.
In a video posted online, Brady was seen saying, “Waiting around on draft day sucks. I know that feeling. It is not easy.”
“But I promise you one thing: It’s going to make everything that happens from that point on a whole lot sweeter.”
Levis was expected to be in the top 15 in a draft class in which three of the top four picks were quarterbacks.
But he failed until the start of the second round because no quarterback was picked in the first round.
Levis is the quarterbacks for the Tennessee Titans alongside Ryan Tannehill and Malik Willis.
