Tom Brady shares his Michigan post-college resumé on Facebook (photo)

Few could have predicted the heights Tom Brady would soar in professional football when he was a middling — if that — quarterbacking prospect for the Michigan Wolverines … even Brady himself.

The New England Patriots’ multiple Super Bowl-winning quarterback took to Facebook to share his resumé from those not-so-heady days heading into the 2000 NFL Draft … you know, if things didn’t work out with the whole pro football gig, if he was drafted at all.

Of course, the Patriots took a flier on the average college football quarterback, drafting him in the sixth round with the 199th overall pick. Incumbent Pats QB Drew Bledsoe suffered a brutal injury in Week 2 of the 2001 season, and the one-time fourth-string Patriots signal-caller took the field to replace the veteran.

And the rest, as they say, is history.

Brady writes on Facebook, “Found my old resume! Really thought I was going to need this after the 5th round,” before alluding to the post as a “Throwback Thursday” kind of bit.

Brady’s allusions to the uncertainty of a possible NFL career makes sense. After all, this is what he looked like at the NFL Combine.

Yeesh.

The resumé indicates that Brady interned at Merrill Lynch during his college days and also worked at the University of Michigan Golf Course as a sales representative/assistant clubhouse manager along with a sprinkling of other random summer jobs along the way.

It’s a shame there isn’t a “Career/Life Goals” section on Brady’s resumé. It would have been interesting to see if he would have listed, “Knock Up a Hollywood Actress then Marry a Supermodel” as one of his aspirations. Probably not.

Okay, check that. It would have been interesting to see if Brady told a “tutor” to list those things. Remember, he was a college football quarterback at a Big Ten university. Even if he wasn’t a highly touted quarterback, he still was a big man on campus.
