Indianapolis - The Atlanta Falcons will pick third overall in April's NFL draft after winning a tiebreaker coin-flip Friday.

New general manager Thomas Dimitroff called "tails" in the coin toss with the Oakland Raiders, who, like Atlanta and Kansas City, shared 4-12 records after the 2007 season. Oakland was awarded the fourth pick; the Chiefs No. 5.
