On the other hand, San Francisco was about as bad as expected with a 1-10 record through Week 12.
The San Francisco 49ers have won a coin flip over the Oakland Raiders, giving them the No. 9 overall selection in the 2018 National Football League draft. Had Oakland won the coin toss, the Patriots would have received the 41st overall pick.
Both teams finished the year with a 6-10 record and an identical strength of schedule (.512), which necessitated the coin toss. The next tiebreaker in such a scenario is a coin flip. Raiders coach Jon Gruden and GM Reggie McKenzie also attended.
Award-winning action shot of coin toss by @ProFootballHOF Rod Woodson to determine 9th-10th positions in 2018 Draft.
That pick is now in the possession of the Patriots following the Jimmy Garoppolo trade.More news: Jaspal Atwal row: India slams Justin Trudeau's defence of Canadian official
The 49ers, who were not awarded any compensatory picks this year, now own nine selections in April's draft.
So the 49ers will pick ninth in the first round, followed by the Raiders at 10, and the Dolphins at 11.
This baby is coming back to the 49ers Museum!
