Browns win coin flip, pick 16th wire reports

BEREA, Ohio (March 18, 2002) -- The Cleveland Browns have their first victory of 2002.

Cleveland won a coin flip against the Atlanta Falcons and will pick 16th in the first round of next month's NFL draft. Atlanta will choose 17th.

Both clubs finished last season with identical 7-9 records and their opponents had the same composite records, requiring the flip.

The Browns will not have one of the first three picks for the first time in four years. They had the No. 1 picks in 1999 and 2000 and drafted third last year.
