Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for May 5, 2014

USA TODAY Sports

Three more days...

We've finally arrived at draft week, Green Bay Packers fans. If you think that the bloviating from draftniks and NFL blogs (this one included) has been bad so far, just watch what happens over the next three days.

True story: this is how I know that the draft getting moved back a week was a bad idea. I actually woke up in a cold sweat last night after dreaming that the Eagles had traded up with the Cardinals for the 20th pick and took the last available player who I wanted the Packers to draft at #21. Commissioner, please don't do this to us again next year.

On to the curds.

I'm squarely on the Logan Thomas bandwagon, as long as he's picked sometime on Day 3.

I will say that I would not be surprised if Ted Thompson ends up with five picks in the top 100, as the mock draft for the Packers here suggests. I would probably be reasonably happy if things worked out like they did here.

Let me just say that, as usual, I am grateful that the Packers' success does not rely on drafting a young quarterback with the intent to make him the starter.

The Notebook: Dee Ford is no 'blind dog in a meat market' - SBNation.com
Well, based on this, I hope Ford isn't the Packers' pick at 21. If he's there in round two, then I'd strongly consider him.

Of course Jerry Jones and his son want the Draft to come to Jerry World. Because why wouldn't they? It's more money in their pockets.
