Peyton Manning is arguably the best quarterback left in the playoffs, but he's definitely the worst quarterback when it comes to at least one thing: playing baseball. Of the four starting quarterbacks left in the NFL postseason, Manning is the only one who wasn't drafted by Major League Baseball.

Lets start with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Brady attended the same California high school as Barry Bonds and almost took the same career path as Bonds. In 1995, Brady was taken in the 18th round of the MLB Draft by the Montreal Expos.

Brady was a catcher who might have actually been drafted higher if not for his football scholarship to Michigan. That scholarship kept Brady from possibly going as high as the fifth-round, according to MLB.com.

A quarterback who did go as high as the fifth-round is Seattle's Russell Wilson, who was taken in the fourth-round in 2010 by the Rockies. That was actually the second time the second baseman had been drafted. Wilson was also taken in the 41st round of the 2007 MLB draft out of high school.

As our friends over at Eye on Baseball have pointed out, Wilson actually spent time in the Rockies farm system.

Wilson did sign with the Rockies for $200,000 and yes, he did play in their farm system for a portion of the 2010-11 seasons. He hit .229/.354/.356 with five home runs, 19 stolen bases and 118 strikeouts in 93 Class A games as a second baseman.
Wilson was also selected in MLB's Rule 5 Draft in December, which essentially means the Rangers bought his baseball rights from the Rockies.
