Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for March 31, 2014

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

New in the picture: a tight end from Washington and an SB Nation writer, RIGHT BEHIND YOU.

Welcome to the start of a new week, Packers fans. As our colleagues over at Bucky's 5th Quarter prepare for a Final Four, we're left to talk about the NFL Draft and Aaron Rodgers' appearances in the Badgers' victorious locker room at the Honda Center in Anaheim.

Just kidding. We're actually going to talk about how the Packers' insurance policy on Rodgers will save them about $350,000 against the salary cap over each of the next few years. We'll also discuss a new mock draft with one name you have come to expect and a second-round projection that should spark some discussion.

Enjoy!

More interesting than the Packers being projected to take C.J. Mosley in the first round (which is no surprise at this point) is that SB Nation's draft gurus have them drafting TE Austin Saferian-Jenkins in the second.

49ers' offensive line stellar, but could face changes soon - SBNation.com
Womp womp. I'm sure that Packers fans won't be too disappointed by that. I know I won't be.
