Vick received a football scholarship to play for the Virginia Tech Hokies . However, he left college after only two years and was selected as the first overall draft pick by the Atlanta Falcons in the 2001 NFL Draft .

April 2007, discovery of his role as “the key figure” of an extensive unlawful interstate dogfighting ring operating over a period of five years  and details of gambling and extreme brutality led to massive negative publicity and separate federal and state felony charges and convictions under plea agreements, as well as payment of approximately $1 million for care and rehabilitation of some of the dogs. He has been under suspended from play by the NFL since August 2007 after pleading guilty to one of the federal felony charges and admitting his personal participation. In December 2007, he was sentenced to serve a 23 month federal prison term; 3 years of prison time in Virginia on other charges was suspended upon condition of good behavior.
