Cowboys win coin flip with Ravens for No. 16 pick in NFL Draft

The Dallas Cowboys will pick No. 16 in the first round of the NFL Draft in May.

The Cowboys won a coin flip with the Baltimore Ravens that took place Wednesday morning at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis to break a tie. The Ravens will have the No. 17 overall selection, which is their highest pick in the draft since 2008.

Both teams finished the regular season with 8-8 records and had identical strength of schedule ratings. Their 2013 opponents' winning percentage was .484, necessitating the coin flip.

NFLDraftScout.com projects the Ravens selecting wide receiver Mike Evans of Texas A&M at No. 17 and the Cowboys taking defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan of Florida State or defensive tackle Aaron Donald of Pittsburgh at No. 16.
