The Dallas Cowboys got their first win of the season.

Sort of.

Dallas won a coin flip with Baltimore and will have the 16th overall selection in the 2014 NFL Draft. Baltimore will pick 17th. Both teams finished last season with 8-8 records. The coin flip was held Wednesday at the NFL Combine.

Dallas has a total of eight selections with one pick in each of the first five rounds, none in the sixth and three in the seventh. The total does not include compensatory selections.

The draft is May 8-10. The first round is May 8. Rounds two and three are on May 9 and rounds 4-7 are May 10. The draft will be held at Radio City Music Hall in New York.

The following players were selected with the 16th overall pick in the past five seasons: 2013, EJ Manuel, quarterback, Buffalo; 2012, Quinton Coples, defensive end, New York Jets; 2011, Ryan Kerrigan, defensive end, Washington; 2010, Derrick Morgan, defensive end, Tennessee; and 2009, Larry English, defensive end, San Diego.

Dallas has never selected No. 16 overall in the first round. In 1961, the Cowboys’ No. 16 pick came in the second round. They selected Texas Tech linebacker E.J. Holub.
