4. Drew Brees, Saints

It took Brees a few years to bloom, but he became a Pro Bowl player in his fourth year in San Diego and then played at an All-Pro level when he got to New Orleans. He was named the MVP of Super Bowl XLIV as the Saints beat the Colts. With a few more productive seasons he'll be in the Hall-of-Fame discussion.
