Dolphins, Chiefs win NFL draft coin tosses

The Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs won today’s coin tosses at the NFL Scouting Combine, and now the NFL draft order is officially set.

The Dolphins won their coin toss with the Panthers, which means the Dolphins will select eighth and the Panthers will select ninth in the first round. The Chiefs won their coin toss with the Seahawks, which means the Chiefs will select 11th and the Seahawks will select 12th.

To ensure there would be no heads-or-tails controversies, the NFL went all-out and made special coins with the teams’ logos, one with the Dolphins’ logo on one side and the Panthers’ logo on the other, and one with the Chiefs’ logo on one side and the Seahawks’ logo on the other.

The picture comes from Josh Looney of the Chiefs.

  1. Dolphin fans a thrilled to get another high round tackle to protect the latest greatest mediocre QB to be installed. In other news, Brandon Marshall’s head exploded all over his pile of cash

  2. No heads/tails controversies? I’m going to make the leap and assume at the start of each flip one team had to be facing up and the other facing down.

  3. Aw man, AlanSaysYo stole my thunder. I was going to say knowing how things are going in South Beach lately the Fins probably deferred.

  4. No head tails controversies?

    Is that like when Ralph told Norton, heads I win tails you lose?

  5. In today’s sports scene, coin tosses should determine nothing but who elects to kick or receive. Hell, you could use divisional winning percentage if you wanted. Or offensive and defensive ranks. A franchise’s future players shouldn’t rest on the luck of a coin flip.

  6. How strange that there isn’t just another layer of tiebreakers for draft order. Going to a coin toss so quickly is odd.

    What a gigantic waste of time and money.

  8. “To ensure there would be no heads-or-tails controversies…”

    even though what you said got alot of thumbs down, it would be rather funny (and money generating) if they did something like this:

    Each team designate who their best Madden player is. The respective players would then have to select their team (i.e: Dolphins vs Panthers) and the winner of that game gets the win in the “coin flip.”

    Hell, Goodell could even televise the game and turn it into a revenue stream. It would be a hell of a lot more fun that a simple coin flip…

  10. You know your business makes a lot of money if you can commission special coins for a single coin toss. They should hold onto the coins, see if one of the teams drafts a great player with the pick they got as a result of the flip, and auction it off for charity.
