Both teams finished 8-8 last season and had the same opponents winning percentage of .484, necessitating the tiebreaker.
Barring a trade, the Cowboys will be using a No. 16 pick in the first round for the first time in franchise history. SB Nation's latest mock draft has them using the selection on Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. That same mock has Baltimore taking Clinton-Dix's teammate, left tackle Cyrus Kouandjio, a pick later. That would be the Ravens' earliest first-round selection since taking Haloti Ngata at No. 12 in 2006.
The Cowboys undoubtedly prefer the higher pick, but No. 17 has been good to them in the past. They used the 17th selection of the 1990 draft to pick up a running back by the name of Emmitt Smith.
