Three out of four remaining playoff quarterbacks were once drafted by MLB team

Of the four quarterbacks remaining in the playoffs, Peyton Manning is the only one who wasn't previously drafted by a Major League Baseball team.

It is a wild fact that was first noticed by John Breech of CBS Sports. As Breech so astutely points out, Tom Brady was drafted by the Montreal Expos in the 18th round in 1995, Russell Wilson was drafted twice by the Baltimore Orioles and Colorado Rockies in 2007 and 2010, respectively, while Colin Kaepernick was tabbed in the 43rd round by the Chicago Cubs in 2009.

It goes without saying, but the three made good choices to pursue an NFL career, instead.
