Seven days from now, the NFL's 2014 Scouting Combine begins, as three positions (the offensive linemen, tight ends, and special teams players) take the stage in front of the media to discuss their futures. Until then, however, we still have seven days to speculate on the 40-yard dash times of many of these prospects, as well as their other measureables.
In today's curds, we have an interview with one particular draft prospect who could be very appealing for the Packers this year in the first or second round, as well as a look at some of the possibilities on the offensive line and a number of silly things going on around the league. Enjoy!

Here's one thing I think we would be in favor of - if Russell Wilson had fallen to the fourth round and the Packers had drafted him instead of Jerron McMillian. That would have been awesome (and they probably would have won more games with Rodgers out this year).
