The Dallas Cowboys will pick No. 16 in the first round of the NFL Draft in May.

The Cowboys won a coin flip with the Baltimore Ravens that took place Wednesday morning at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis to break a tie. The Ravens will have the No. 17 overall selection, which is their highest pick in the draft since 2008.

Both teams finished the regular season with 8-8 records and had identical strength of schedule ratings. Their 2013 opponents' winning percentage was .484, necessitating the coin flip.

NFLDraftScout.com projects the Ravens selecting wide receiver Mike Evans of Texas A&M at No. 17 and the Cowboys taking defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan of Florida State or defensive tackle Aaron Donald of Pittsburgh at No. 16.
