9. Drew Brees
Before anyone was yelling "Geaux, Drew, Geaux," Drew Brees was just an average kid in Austin. He graduated from Westlake High School with hopes of playing college football at the University of Texas or Texas A&M, but ended up heading north to Purdue University. So, in a roundabout way you can also thank UT for not taking him, undoubtedly further fueling his drive to become a champion. Whoops.
