Niners win coin toss over Raiders for ninth overall pick

To coach Shanahan, the final three games of the season against the Tennessee Titans, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Los Angeles Rams really was a glimpse into the future success brewing in San Francisco.

The 49ers won a coin flip against the Oakland Raiders on Friday to secure the ninth overall pick in April's National Football League draft.

Both teams finished with a 6-10 record last season and a.512 SOS, which would've been used as the tiebreaker.

The 49ers traded their second-round pick, which turns out to be No. 43 overall, to the New England Patriots in the October exchange that sent quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to San Francisco.

Former Raider and 49er Rod Woodson flipped the coin in front of the bench press at the Indiana Convention Center around 12:30 p.m. EST, and it landed on the 49ers logo.

While Oakland surely wanted the higher pick, these two teams will likely have different targets on draft day, which means the 49ers likely won't take the player the Raiders want.

Asked for his thoughts by NFL Network after the flip, Oakland general manager Reggie McKenzie simply said, "Bad flip".

As for the Raiders, Casserly and Schrager each have Oakland targeting Edmunds at No. 10 if he's still available.

This baby is coming back to the 49ers Museum!
