Happy Friday, Packers fans! Today, we finish out the top 10 picks in our APC Mock Draft with the Bills and Lions on the clock. Also, our pick is up at 11 AM Central in the SB Nation Mock Draft. With the top two safeties off the board as well as C.J. Mosley, we had a tough decision. Stay tuned around lunch time to find out who we selected on behalf of the Packers with the 21st pick.

In today's curds, though, we have a look at some day 2 and 3 college prospects, plus a look at the team's backup quarterback situation. Enjoy!

Our final curd of the day is a tweet about a wide receiver prospect who is widely expected to be drafted in the first two rounds next month. It might not be the case if he keeps this up:

Whoops. That's a really bad move, Mister Benjamin, especially for a guy whose work ethic has been questioned during the draft process.
