Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for April 28, 2014

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Ted Thompson's draft track record is broken down by multiple media sources in today's links.

We're finally making progress, everyone. There are 10 days left until the draft kicks off a week from Thursday, and the Packers are undoubtedly putting the final touches on their draft board. Ted Thompson's biggest contribution to the team's talent pool for 2014 is very much in question, as everyone seems to have differing opinions on what position is the likeliest target for the team in round one.

Ted's history is also a major topic of discussion around the blogs today, as we have several links looking back at his history by position, by round, and by other methods.

"So you're pretty certain, almost positive, that Ted Thompson is going to select either a safety or a tight end in the first round of the NFL draft May 8." Um...actually, I'm not so sure about that. I strongly believe that a linebacker or wide receiver would be the most likely options.

Raji, Jolly, and Daniels are the top three. I expect Datone Jones to make a quick rise up this list by the end of next year, though.
