It's draft time in the National Football League. For most high-ranking team executives, this means endless days of high-stakes negotiations. But for Baltimore Ravens General Manager Jon Sabino--who has two consecutive Super Bowl victories under his belt--hiring new talent is the last thing on his mind...until his star quarterback gets into a car accident that leaves him unable to play. With his eyes on an unprecedented third Lombardi Trophy, Sabino sees only one option: acquiring guaranteed first pick Christian McKinley, the quarterback phenom from Michigan. But at what price?

The San Diego Chargers, who presently hold that pick, are not interested in McKinley--so they'll offer it to the highest bidder. Now Sabino must jump into a cut-throat competition in which old friends become mortal enemies, and no one--not even your allies--can be trusted. The "McKinley Sweepstakes" could very well be the make-or-break moment of Sabino's career, and the fork in the road that leads him and his team either into the history books--or to the tepid hell of mediocrity....
