Well this story has made it on Great Blue North Draft Report after I called in to ask if they heard anything of a coin flip between SF and TENN. Too bad they don't mention my name.
To flip or not to flip … There is a report in the San Jose Mercury that a coin flip has already been held to break the draft order tie between San Francisco with a pick from Carolina and Tennessee for the 16th and 17th picks at the 2010 draft. According to the report the 49ers got the 16th pick and Tennessee the 17th. However, this site is the only one reporting this. In fact, coin flips in the past have usually been conducted at the scouting combine in Indianapolis in late February and while the NFL still hasn’t announced when this year’s flips will take place, the NFL’s web site is still listing those two picks, as well as the 10th and 11th picks -Denver with a pick from Chicago and Jacksonville - as well and the 19th and 20th picks - Houston and Atlanta - as being subject to coin flips. Stay tuned.
