As the work week begins to wind down, Senior Bowl practice is approaching the end as well. Today's cheese curds cover a random assortment of topics, the Senior Bowl among them. We've got projections on free agency, picks for the top players in the NFC North (which include six Green Bay Packers), a look ahead to a big contract for a fan favorite, and a preview of the Super Bowl by someone who has never watched a football game.

Senior Bowl Day 3 practice report -
Pittsburgh DT Aaron Donald sounds like a Mike Daniels clone at 6'1", 288. I really hope he doesn't end up in Chicago.

Point of Veau: Jordy Nelson’s Payday is Coming … Soon | Cheesehead TV
Yup. Jordy was signed to an incredibly team-friendly deal just before his breakout in 2011...he won't be so cheap if the Packers want to lock him up long-term again.

To nobody's surprise, Aaron Rodgers, Eddie Lacy, Jordy Nelson, and Josh Sitton made the team. Joining them were Mike Daniels and Sam Shields on defense.

The Carolina Panthers and the Chicago Raiders will play in the 79th edition of the football finals in Tampa, Florida. Awesome.

This is a great idea. Go be a good person, donate some money to something good, and get in the game.
