Mike Vick to Atlanta

One of the most talked about first-pick swaps took place in 2001. The Atlanta Falcons moved up to the No. 1 spot to pick QB Michael Vick while the San Diego Chargers moved from No. 1 to No. 5 and acquired running back LaDainian Tomlinson. The trade made Vick the first African-American quarterback to be chosen as a top pick.
