Top 5: Trade contenders for number one pick in NFL Draft (1)

With the NFL Draft just about six weeks away, and the pro days wrapping up, the slotting is starting to take shape, as to who might go where and when.

The Houston Texans hold the number one selection, and are reportedly actively shopping the number one selection in this year's draft.

The number one pick hasn't been traded since 2001, when the San Diego Chargers traded the top selection to the Atlanta Falcons for several draft picks, and wide receiver Tim Dwight.

The Falcons took Michael Vick with the pick, and the Chargers used their selections to take LaDainian Tomlinson, Reche Caldwell, and Tay Cody.

The only other trade of a top pick in the last 20 years involved the Chargers also, in 2004, when the Chargers picked Eli Manning first overall, and traded him too the Giants for Phillip Rivers and the picks that became Nate Kaeding and Shawne Merriman, who combined to make five pro bowls.

There can be boom or bust value from the first pick, in trading it, or using it, and now that the Texans secret is out, its time to take a look at who could be a potential winner, or loser, if the Texans can make a deal for the top selection.
