In 2003, the Ravens were involved in one of the strangest draft day incidents in the history of the NFL. The Ravens--in desperate need of a franchise quarterback--had arranged to swap first round picks with the Minnesota Vikings, moving them up from 10th to 7th and allowing them to draft Marshall quarterback Byron Leftwich. However, the Jacksonville Jaguars--slated to pick 8th that year--also coveted Leftwich and did not want the Ravens to move ahead of them. In a clever move of gamesmanship, Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio, a former Ravens assistant, flooded the NFL league offices with phone calls so that the lines would be busy when the Ravens and Vikings attempted to make their trade official. As a result, the trade never went through, and time ran out on the Vikings' 7th pick. With no pick made, control moved to the 8th pick, owned by Jacksonville, which they used to select Leftwich.

With all of the top quarterbacks in the 2003 draft gone, The Ravens would go on to use the 10th pick to select Arizona State defensive end Terrell Suggs. Still in need of a quarterback, however, they would later trade their 2nd round pick and their 2004 1st round pick to the New England Patriots for the 19th overall selection, which they would use to select Cal quarterback Kyle Boller. The Patriots would use the Ravens' 2004 1st round selection to take defensive tackle Vince Wilfork.
