Dez Bryant became the first draft choice from the 2010 first round to agree to terms on a contract, a reported five-year deal with the Cowboys.

The Oklahoma State wide receiver, selected 24th overall, will reportedly sign a deal that will pay him approximately $12 million over five years, including $8.5 million guaranteed, according to NFL Network, which cited a league source.

Dallas traded up three spots in the first round to choose Bryant, giving up a third-round pick to New England in exchange for a fourth-rounder and a swap of first-round picks.

Bryant was the second wide receiver drafted this year, two picks after Denver selected Demaryius Thomas.
