INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The NFL's Falcons won a coin toss for draft position today. It means Atlanta will pick third in the April 26th draft, with Oakland fourth and Kansas City fifth.

All three teams finished at 4-and-12 and their opponents had an identical record, the first tiebreaker.

There will be 31 picks in the first round. New England lost its choice as part of the penalty for the illegal taping of opponents' signals.
