Florida State defensive tackle Braden Fiske became the first player in Senior Bowl history to switch teams on game day Saturday.

Because of roster attrition at his position on the National team, Fiske moved over from the American roster for the pre-draft showcase in Mobile, Ala.

Senior Bowl executive director Jim Nagy announced the first such "trade" in the 75-year history of the event on social media.

"Fiske ... was already one of the week's biggest risers," Nagy posted on X. "This type of selfless, 'I just wanna play' attitude will help him immensely in the eyes of NFL decision-makers."

The 6-foot-4, 295-pound Fiske has been projected as a fifth-round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft by Field Level Media.

He transferred to Florida State after four seasons at Western Michigan (2019-22) and delivered six sacks and nine tackles for loss in 13 games for the 2023 ACC champion Seminoles (13-1).
