Ravens lose coin flip to Cowboys, will pick 17th at upcoming NFL draft

The Ravens will have the 17th overall pick in the first round of the NFL draft. - Patrick McDermott

Dallas has 16th pick, Ravens get 17th.

By chance, the Ravens will pick 17th in the first round at the upcoming NFL draft.

With the Ravens and Cowboys both finishing 2013 with 8-8 records and holding the same opponents' winning percentage, a coin flip determined which team would pick 16th overall. The Cowboys were the winners of the lucky coin flip.


As of now, SB Nation's Mocking the Draft has the Ravens taking Alabama offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio and the Cowboys selecting Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Free safety is a need for both the Ravens and Cowboys, so if the Ravens were targeting someone like Clinton-Dix in the first round, losing the coin toss could hurt them.

The silver lining — though this is why the Ravens are picking in the middle of the first round — is that the Ravens have a few positions of need. There should be a lot of quality players available at the 17th overall pick.
