Eagles claim No. 14 overall pick after winning coin toss

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Philadelphia Eagles won a coin toss with the Indianapolis Colts on Friday to claim the No. 14 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

The Eagles hold the Minnesota Vikings' first-round selection, via the trade that brought quarterback Sam Bradford to Minnesota. The Vikings finished the season tied with the Colts for the No. 14 position in the draft order as both teams were 8-8 with identical strength-of-schedule ratings (.492), hence the need for the coin toss. As losers of the toss, the Colts will draft at No. 15.

While it might be unlikely that the two clubs target the same player, the Eagles and Coltsdo share a position need in the draft: running back. If both look to fill that need in the first round, the result of the toss could have all the more impact.
