Quick, shut off your playbook iPads and lock them in a closet so other teams can't hack them!

This Thursday morning sees little news from the Packers world, but some interesting nuggets from around the NFL. It's time for bold off-season predictions, rationalizing personnel decisions, and unfortunate injuries (but luckily those aren't happening to any Packers right now--knock on wood). Here we go!

Settling in at center - ESPN Wisconsin
Evan Dietrich-Smith fought hard for his roster spot and has earned the front-runner spot for a starting job. Hopefully he can excel in that role.

Green Bay Packers chat with Rob Demovsky: June 12, 2013 | Press-Gazette
"When it comes to Hawk, their thinking is -- and always has been -- that he's ultra dependable and doesn't make assignment errors. Coaches tend to prefer that over say, a more athletic but less reliable player."

I expect the team to rush for 3,500 yards and 42 touchdowns.

And that's why I'm #TeamAndroid. Commence IT flame war! (But don't really)

Victor Butler injury: Saints LB tears ACL - SBNation.com
Ouch. Butler was a relatively highly-regarded linebacker in this year's free agent class. That's unfortunate for that Saints defense.

Ahmad Bradshaw adds new dimension to Colts offense - SBNation.com
Obviously, drafting two running backs means that the Packers were no longer in the market for Bradshaw. He's still a great pass blocker though, and this could be a nice pickup for the Colts if his foot cooperates.

Finally, to those of you in the path of the nasty storms yesterday, we hope everyone is safe and sound.
