    5. Coin flip(s), which occur(s) at the pre-draft NFL Combine.

    Since Washington had the same win/loss record but beat us in head to head, my guess is they had a lower strength of schedule.

    EDIT: Yup. The Vikings opponents had a .520 winning percentage. The Redskins opponents had a .494 winning percentage.
    Thanks

    Draft tiebreakers are even screwier than playoff tiebreakers. Washington was also a division winner, whereas we finished as a Wildcard.

    As long as we make the most of what we have, it won't matter that much where we pick.

    LOL!! Yup!!!! I'm thinking 2 in the first 3 rounds, cuz their ain't much available on the FA market, and they're all about to get overpaid...hopefully, by someone else!

    Tho...IF we trade Harvin, I would like to see us take a shot at Welker. It'd be best to have at least some vet presence at the position, to help the rookies develop faster. And if lose Harvin's production we better freaking sign somebody to replace some of it!

    I would like to see a WR to replace Simpson and stretch the field. Not just someone with speed, but also with good hands.
    A stud middle linebacker that can stuff the run and cover tight ends.
    Another cornerback to keep Sherels and maybe Jefferson on the bench as well as a better back up if Winfield gets injured.
    Another guard to upgrade Johnson or Fusco. That inside pressure on passing downs has flushed Ponder out of the pocket far too many times.
    Another safety to play beside Smith.
    A big run stuffing defensive tackle.
    A good blocking tight end to replace Carlson.
    Another linebacker for depth.

    That's my draft wish list.

    I doubt we see Welker. Not only does he not fit Spielman's vision for FA (end of first contract with upside), but he has been in the league 9 years and has personally I think he benefits from playing in NE. I don't see him having the same production anywhere else.

    Cordarelle Patterson should be our First Round pick. I see no way in hell he makes it past 23. IF he makes it to 23. He is 6'4, randy moss like speed. We need some of that.

    Cordarelle Patterson will probably go later than #23. Many sites have him below several WRs like Keenan Allen out of Cal, Terrance Williams out of Baylor, Tavon Austin out of WVU, DeAndre Haopkins out of Clemson and he isn't even considered the best WR on his team. Many site have Justin Hunter ahead of him. So if we draft a WR I say we go for one in the second or third round because there isn't much difference between all these guys.
