Coin toss tabs Oakland at seven

The Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers were tied at the end of the regular season in terms of their draft status by virtue of having the same record and strength of schedule. On Friday, their fate was determined.

A coin flip determined that the Oakland Raiders would pick seventh overall in the upcoming NFL Draft with the San Francisco 49ers picking sixth.

The two teams don't figure to be selecting the same position but it could still hurt the Raiders - if the Niners are high on a prospect that Oakland also has in their sights.

The two teams will alternate positions in rounds two through seven of the NFL Draft.
