#32 Pick: Drew Brees

With the 32nd pick in the 2001 NFL Draft, the San Diego Chargers traded out of their number one overall position that they possessed which eventually went to the Atlanta Falcons, who promptly took Michael Vick. The Chargers then went on to fill two major needs, drafting future Hall of Fame RB LaDainian Tomlinson at No. 6 overall and future Hall of Famer Drew Brees twenty six spots later at #32. While Brees and Tomlinson helped lift the Chargers out of the doldrums, the quarterback saved his finest work for another team, as I’m sure you all know. Brees would go on to win Super Bowl XLIV (and earned game MVP honors) with the New Orleans Saints, two seasons later broke the single-season passing yardage record and a season after that set a new mark for consecutive games with a touchdown pass. The rest of his game speaks for itself. This man is a legendary QB; anyone who denies that simply doesn’t know football.
