From NFL.com:

CLEVELAND (Feb. 23, 2007) -- 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.

In 2005, the Browns selected wide receiver Braylon Edwards with the third choice.

:sleepy: Who cares it's only the Browns, its not like they'll actually do anything with yet another high 1st round draft pick except see him get injured or just flat out be a bust.

It was said on NFL network that the coin toss cost Calvin about 7 million dollars! With the Browns projected to take a RB possibly Adrian Peterson dropping down to the 4th overall pick will cost Johnson about 7 mil over the course of his first contract. Tampa Bay is projected to be taking a WR with their pick and Calvin is far and away the top receiver. The coin toss cost Calvin some coin! :lol:

I was much happier with the slow bang out a yard or two runner that Droughns was than the idea that the Brownies could draft Peterson who is a FWP like threat with speed and power! Gotta trust our D to overpower their O-line and plug the holes but Peterson improves the Browns and give their offense some firepower!

That franchise is a total disfunctional joke. Every bit of talent they get either gets hurt or flops and they can't get a QB to play well for more than 2 or 3 games in a row to save their life.
