Philip Rivers' dream of playing in the NFL came true on Saturday as he was selected by the New York Giants in the 2004 NFL draft. However, in a blockbuster deal he was traded to the San Diego Chargers minutes later.

Rivers and three draft picks was dealt for #1 pick Eli Manning. San Diego will pick up the Giants third round pick this year and their first and fifth round picks in 2005.
