Undersized Pat's story raises interesting question...: who is the most unlikely player to be starting in the Super Bowl given their background? On one level it could be Tom Brady - college backup / 6th rounder. But this article shows at least one other to consider - Stephen Neal, the Pat's offensive linemen didn't play college football (he was an NCAA championship wrestler and NFL "walk-on"). Who do you suggest? Doesn't need to be this year.
