This edition of SB Nation's Choose Your Own Adventure makes YOU the star as you play the role of a owner/GM sorting your way through the top five prospects in the 2011 NFL Draft. Is Blaine Gabbert too beautiful to succeed? Is Ryan Mallett's nickname really "Big Sex?" You won't know until you make the first and most important pick of all: the choice of ADVENTURE.

BEWARE AND WARNING! 

This story is different than other stories. It has no well-orchestrated ending or conclusion besides those determined by YOUR CHOICES, unless you are talking about the television money. You still get that no matter how horrible you are at this, because you are an NFL owner and you do not play games you cannot win. (This rule does not apply to football games, especially if you are in the parasite class of NFL owners who don't even try. Cincinnati, I see you!) 

This is a very different kind of book. YOU AND YOU ALONE are in charge of what happens in this story. You are an NFL owner. For the purposes of this conceit you are also the general manager. This is a situation that happens nowhere in professional football, because these are professionals, and not just fiefdoms run by insane rich men who are winging it so hard and just got lucky a few times. No, you are a cold, sober, and calculating professional. Behave like one, and your story will end well, my friend.*

*Offer void if you are pretending to be Al Davis. Do whatever you like, go nuts. You're crazy and live in a pit filled with crazy gel. Have a nice roll in it. You will love it because you are insane.

There are dangers, consequences, choices, and adventures. YOU must use all of your numerous talents and all of your enormous intelligence.

So GM AND MOST DEFINITELY NOT OWNER of this NFL Franchise. You get first pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. Ignoring all position concerns and personnel needs, let's just do some shopping. Why, here's Cam Newton. He seems like a nice fellow, just ambling down the road there. Why don't we speak to him?
