Jimmy Clausen And Dez Bryant Could Be Trade-Targets In NFL Draft

If you're looking for a trade in the first round of the NFL draft, then two names to keep an eye on are Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen and Oklahoma State WR Dez Bryant.

After Sam Bradford likely goes No. 1 overall to the Rams, Clausen will be the best available quarterback. Bryant, meanwhile, is far and away the most talented receiver in the draft but has some off-the-field issues that could scare some teams away.

Michael Lombardi of the National Football Post explains the interest in Clausen and Bryant:

Teams that want to move down are hoping that Clausen or Bryant make it to them, and they'll get calls to move. Miami would love to go down to recoup its second-round pick. If Bryant makes it to them, they might have to take that chance. Bryant has not worked his way back into the top 10 yet, but he's getting closer.

It appears the first team that could seemingly select Clausen is the Browns at No. 7. As for Bryant, the Broncos could be interested with the 11th pick. Those are the two spots to keep in mind when it comes to trades for both of these players.
