Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for April 17, 2014

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Wherein we find that -- SURPRISE -- Hollywood exaggerates the drama of the NFL Draft.

Three more weeks. Finally, three weeks from today the NFL Draft will begin and we will finally learn what the Green Bay Packers will do with the 21st overall selection. It's been an agonizing few months, and it's only going to get worse over the final stretch. At least we should have the NFL's schedule announcement sometime next week to diagnose, and we're only about halfway through our APC Mock Draft, so stay tuned for picks 17 and 18 later today.

In today's curds, though, we find a Packer legend talking about his career, a current star talking about his new teammate, and a draft prospect who looks like a former Packer. Enjoy!
