Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for April 11, 2014

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Tight end prospects are featured in today's curds, as the Packers have been linked to many of them recently.

Happy Friday, Packers fans! Today, we finish out the top 10 picks in our APC Mock Draft with the Bills and Lions on the clock. Also, our pick is up at 11 AM Central in the SB Nation Mock Draft. With the top two safeties off the board as well as C.J. Mosley, we had a tough decision. Stay tuned around lunch time to find out who we selected on behalf of the Packers with the 21st pick.

In today's curds, though, we have a look at some day 2 and 3 college prospects, plus a look at the team's backup quarterback situation. Enjoy!

Backup Plan | ESPN Wisconsin
Don't expect the Packers to sign Flynn until after the draft. Personally, I'd still expect them to draft a developmental QB late.

Memory of Late Father Fans Flame Within NFL Draft Prospect Carl Bradford | Cheesehead TV
If versatility is the name of the game, Bradford could be a good pick for the Packers in the middle rounds. The lessons he learned from his father make for a good story as well, and we wish Bradford well with whatever NFL team he ends up on.

Our final curd of the day is a tweet about a wide receiver prospect who is widely expected to be drafted in the first two rounds next month. It might not be the case if he keeps this up:

Whoops. That's a really bad move, Mister Benjamin, especially for a guy whose work ethic has been questioned during the draft process.
