INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- The Cleveland Browns won a coin flip for the right to select third in this year's NFL draft, while regulating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the fourth spot.

The Browns and Buccaneers had tied for the third-worst regular-season record -- 4-12 -- and their opponents had identical winning percentages, leading the NFL to the coin flip tiebreaker.

Tampa Bay General Manager Bruce Allen called heads but the toss Friday came up tails.

The 2007 NFL draft is scheduled for April 28-29. The Oakland Raiders, who finished 2006 2-14, have the first selection followed by the Detroit Lions, who were 3-13.
