NDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Atlanta Falcons won a coin toss for
draft position today, meaning they will pick third in the April
26th draft with Oakland fourth and Kansas City fifth.
All three teams finished at 4-12 and their opponents had an
identical record, the first tiebreaker.
There will be 31 picks in the first round, with New England
losing its choice, taken away as part of the penalty for its
illegal taping of opponents' signals.
