Packers To Pick 30th In 2008 NFL Draft

COIN FLIP DETERMINES FINAL FIRST-ROUND ORDER IN NFL DRAFT

A coin flip at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis Friday has set the final order for the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft.

The Atlanta Falcons won the coin flip with the Oakland Raiders. They will select third in the first round, Oakland fourth and the Kansas City Chiefs fifth.

The three clubs had the same strength of schedule at the end of the season, thus necessitating today's coin toss. Kansas City finished third in the AFC West Division and the Raiders fourth (based on record in common games), so Oakland will choose ahead of Kansas City. Atlanta won today's coin flip with Oakland, thus producing the final third-through-fifth overall choices. If Oakland had won, they would have drafted third, and Atlanta and Kansas City would have flipped to determine the fourth and fifth positions.

The NFL Draft will be held on April 26-27 in New York City.
