Cleveland won a coin flip with Tampa Bay on Friday at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis and will pick third overall in April's draft. The Buccaneers will select fourth.

The teams finished with identical 4-12 records last season and their opponents had the same winning percentage, making the coin toss necessary.

Browns general manager Phil Savage and Tampa Bay GM Bruce Allen represented their clubs at the coin toss. Allen called heads and the coin landed tails, giving the Browns the No. 3 overall pick for the fifth time in club history.

There's got to be a better way to figure this. Honestly, a flippin' coin flip?

IMO, it's not huge. I think the Browns draft board consists of Quinn, Russell, Peterson.. Where the Bucs consists of Johnson, Thomas at large. What is interesting though, is that the Bucs were probably more likely to trade down than the Browns, and now they have less value at that pick.

This is big for them. I think Quinn, or Peterson will go there at 3 now.

I honestly don't think they'll pass on Peterson for Quinn here...

They really need a QB, plus if all the rumors are true about Wies talking to Rome, and Quinn is a local guy. Might happen.
