Draft picks cannot be traded. In addition, a player once drafted cannot be traded until 1 year to the day after signing. This explains a lot of times when a player is traded for a player to be named later, (Jeremy Bonderman was a player to be named later in the Jeff Weaver trade in 2003 because Bonderman signed on August 2, 2002 but Weaver was traded on July 6, 2003 so Oakland had to wait until August 2, 2003 to trade him so he was called a player to be named later)
Utah in 2005
Quarterback Alex Smith was a Heisman Trophy finalist and the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft. The men's basketball team, on the shoulders of Consensus All-American and National Player of the Year Andrew Bogut, made the Sweet 16. Bogut was the first pick in the 2005 NBA draft, making Utah the first school in NCAA history to boast a No. 1 pick in the NFL and NBA in the same year.
Carolina just did it this past year taking Cam Newton in the first round after taking Jimmy Clausen in the 2nd round last year.....Carolina didn't have a first round pick in the 2010 draft so in essence it was pretty much the same value.
A group of teams with the worst records of the season before are picked randomly for early draft picks.
Darren Mcfadden from Arkansas is the best player available in the draft. He will be the first running back selected.

Each team gets 10 minutes to select a player in the first round. The second round gets shortened to seven minutes per pick. From rounds 3-7, teams get five minutes per pick.
Its actually a very pale black, he enjoys this because when he looks at this pale black it reminds him of the coal Santa would always get him for Christmas, but unfortunately he just found out his father was pretending to be said Santa and that Santa never actually came to visit him. Because of this his seemingly favourite colour (being a very pale black) has now turned into a very dark white all due to the fact that Michael wants to start a new life with this new favourite colour being the all too well known, very dark white.
No. Many of them wind up signing as free agents with National Football League teams. Some of them eventually made it big in the pro game (example: Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who was not drafted in 2003).
It is important that you have the skills /talent to join. You must play College Football and spend 2 years there. You must also have an agent.

The Miami Dolphins picked Jake Long, an OT out of the University of Michigan with the first pick in the 2008 NFL Draft.
Here is a quick bio from draft day from ESPN.com:
Jake Long's not the best overall player on the board, but the Dolphins needed a left tackle. Some people say he's a better fit on the right side, but we disagree. He's fundamentally sound enough in pass protection to be a capable blind-side protector from Day 1, and while he's certainly not as athletic as Joe Thomas -- Cleveland's first-round pick a year ago -- Long is a better run blocker than Thomas was coming out of college. Long can play a similar role to the one Jumbo Elliot played with Bill Parcells with the Giants in the 1980s.
There isn't really an average signing bonus. Signing bonuses for the first round NFL draft pick can range anywhere from 45,000 to 15 million and anywhere in between.
