Today marks the beginning of the end of the NFL offseason. Teams without new head coaches can start voluntary workouts today. The NFL Draft is a week from Thursday, and I'm heaving into a paper bag even though we won't know whether or not we had a good draft for two years. In today's Green Bay Packers news and links, we have a bunch of different draft stuff.

Taking a stab at another Vikings' mock draft | Daily Norseman

Everyone's favorite Vikings blogger does a Vikings mock draft. He's not projecting any trades. The picks all seem to make sense to me.

How much does Randy Moss improve the 49ers' title chances? | Niners Nation

Buffalo Bills stadium renovations expected to top $200 million | Buffalo Rumblings

I've never been to The Ralph, but the commenters at BR refer to it as a dump. That may be, but I willingly go to RFK Stadium, so nuh uh, you can't tell me nothing (whoa oh oh oh oh).

Why optimism for the Falcons might be running too high | The Falcoholic

I'm really interested to see what's going to play out in the NFC South this year. The Saints will probably be worse, the Panthers and Buccaneers will almost certainly be better, and the Falcons are a small mystery. They appear to have stagnated. They're decent, but they have an obvious ceiling and it doesn't seem like they're going to break through it. They're...kind of like the Sherman Packers.
