ATLANTA – With the knowledge they possess the sixth overall pick, the Atlanta Falcon front office can now start plotting for the May 8 National Football League Draft.

The Falcons finished 4-12, tied with four other teams for the third-worst record in the NFL. The tie between the Falcons, Jaguars, Browns, Raiders and Buccaneers will be broken by strength of schedule. Jacksonville gets the third pick thanks to having the weakest schedule out of the group of five teams. Tampa Bay holds the seventh pick because their schedule was the toughest.
