The Atlanta Falcons will learn Friday whether they will hold the third, fourth or fifth selection at this April's NFL draft.

A coin-flip tiebreaker will be held at a special meeting during the scouting combine in Indianapolis to finalize the draft order for Atlanta, Kansas City and Oakland. All three teams finished last season with 4-12 records.

General manager Thomas Dimitroff will represent the Falcons, who will pair off with Oakland for the first coin flip. The winner chooses third, behind Miami and St. Louis, respectively. The loser is paired with Kansas City with the winner choosing fourth.
