The big coin flip
A coin flip will decide the 14th and 15th picks in this year's draft because the Vikings and Colts finished with the same records and had the same strength of schedule. The Eagles own the Vikings' pick thanks to the Sam Bradford trade.
The flip will happen during the combine in March in Indy, so maybe the Colts have a home-field advantage.
With the coin flip looming, we decided to take a look back to see if it really matters. If there's a discernible difference between the two picks. We looked back at the last 10 years and this is what we found:
Four of the last 10 picks at No. 14 have made a Pro Bowl, while three have been All-Pros. Meanwhile, seven of the last 10 picks at No. 15 have been Pro Bowlers, while one has been an All-Pro.
While more Pro Bowlers have come from No. 15, the greatest players came from 14. In fact, 14 beats 15 in total Pro Bowls 15-11 and total All-Pro selections 8-1.
Interesting: No. 14 picks have started a combined 661 games, while No. 15s have started a combined 660. It's worth noting there have been just two Pro Bowlers from players drafted at 14 or 15 in the last five years.
Let's look back through the years.
