The NFL Draft is never without drama and this year's version is no exception. With teams looking to alter and upgrade their rosters with talented, young players in the draft, it often results in trading away players of value in a swap for additional picks.

With that in mind, here are the four biggest names who could get traded by the end of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Patrick Peterson made waves this past season by requesting a trade out of Arizona. Now, it looks like the franchise might actually honor his request. Trade rumors surrounding the disgruntled cornerback began to heat up in the lead up to the draft and if a team comes to the Cardinals with a strong enough offer, Peterson is as good as gone.

Solomon Thomas hasn't lived up to his first-round billing in his short NFL career. But the Stanford product is still a quality football player. His value is still very much uncertain, but the Niners look ready to move on from the former No. 3 overall pick after taking Nick Bosa with this year's first-round selection.

2. Jadeveon Clowney, LB, Houston Texans

Jadeveon Clowney was slapped with the Texans' franchise tag this offseason, but he has yet to sign his tender as extension talks with Houston continue to go nowhere. The organization said they are willing to trade Clowney, and if someone offer them enough draft capital, the two-time Pro Bowler could be headed out of town.

The Josh Rosen sweepstakes is officially underway now that the Cardinals have selected Kyler Murray with the first-overall pick. Last year's No. 10 selection still has plenty of potential, despite a tough rookie year, and there are several teams that could use young QB like Rosen. It's likely only a matter of time before Rosen finds a new home as the Dolphins are reportedly close to a deal with the Cardinals that would include the 48th pick.
