Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for January 21, 2014

USA TODAY Sports

Senior Bowl practice is in full swing, bringing draft speculation right along with it.

If our kicking off the offseason roster review of our Green Bay Packers didn't make it clear to anyone that evaluation season is in full swing, all the news from the Senior Bowl this week should do the trick. The first practices of the week finished up on Monday, and there will be some huge number of articles written all week analyzing and overanalyzing the play of each of the players present.

That said, you know darn well that Ted Thompson is in attendance along with probably another handful of Packers scouts as they start to set up the Packers' draft board as the days tick down to the start of the 2014 NFL Draft in May. Today's curds address a variety of evaluations. Enjoy!

Gotta love Wes' writing style: "After Lacy took a flamethrower to the franchise rookie record book, it’s easy to forget about Harris, the former car salesman who breathed life into an otherwise lethargic rushing offense in 2012."

A tale of two Crabtrees. The one Packers fans like wasn't in Seattle on Sunday night but instead was, as he said, "in bed cuddling (his) pug".
