The Atlanta Falcons used the fifth overall pick of the 1989 NFL Draft to select 2x Consensus All-American defensive back, Deion Sanders out of Florida State University. Sanders had an immediate impact on the NFL. As a rookie, he recorded five interceptions, returned one punt for a touchdown and became one of the most exciting players in NFL history. During his five seasons in Atlanta, Sanders intercepted 24 passes and returned three of them for touchdowns. He also returned two punts and three kicks for TDs and was selected to three NFL Pro Bowls. In 1994, Deion joined the San Francisco 49ers and had the best season of his career. He intercepted 12 passes, returned three of them for touchdowns and was the 1994 NFL Defensive Player of the Year. His efforts also led the 49ers to a victory in Super Bowl XXIX. Sanders joined the Dallas Cowboys in 1995 and won his second consecutive Super Bowl ring. He played five seasons with the Cowboys and appeared in four more Pro Bowls. He spent the 2000 season with the Washington Redskins and retired at the end of the season. Four years later, he decided to come out of retirement and played two seasons with the Baltimore Ravens before hanging up his cleats for good in 1995.
Deion also had a pretty impressive baseball career. He was originally drafted by the Kansas City Royals directly out of high school, but opted to play attend for Florida State instead. He was later drafted by the New York Yankees during the 30th round of the 1988 Amateur Baseball Draft. He played 10 MLB seasons with the Yankees, Braves, Giants and Reds and led the majors with 14 triples in 1992.
