SHARE Buccaneers send 6th rounder in '09 for Griese

Tom Brady was once a sixth-round draft pick.

Theres no saying the Bears will come up with the next future Hall of Fame quarterback from that round, but that is the 2009 draft pick they received from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for quarterback Brian Griese on Monday.

General manager Jerry Angelo and college scouting director Greg Gabriel have founds success in later rounds.

A look at the sixth-round picks during Angelos tenure:


Traded to Washington for safety Adam Archuleta. Looks like he will be back for 2008 after already landing big money in contract. He’s on the books for $730,000, the minimum for a player with eight years service.


Fullback J.D. Runnels. Was on injured reserve in 2007 following knee surgery.

Guard Tyler Reed. Spent the last two seasons on the practice squad.


Safety Chris Harris. Just signed a nice longterm extension with the Carolina Panthers. Sure would have come in handy last season when he forced a league-high eight fumbles for his new team.


Traded to Washington for fullback Bryan Johnson. Injuries prevented him from ever achieving his potential.


Linebacker Joe Odom. Was a decent special teams player for a short run.

Running back Brock Forsey. Achieved great notoriety with 134-yard game vs. Arizona as a rookie.


Wide receiver Jamin Elliott. Was released by the Atlanta Falcons last month.

Tight end Bryan Fletcher. Still in the league with the Indianapolis Colts.
