Happy tax day, everyone!

Matthew Stockman

As you rush to the post office to file your taxes, make sure you take your phone with you so you can keep an eye on Acme Packing Company today. We'll have picks 13 and 14 in our mock draft for you later today, but first we bring you what news there is to report from around the NFL.

As far as Packers-related news items go, there isn't a ton today that directly affects the team, but there are certainly a few bits and pieces of news that could affect Green Bay indirectly. One such item involves tight end Jermichael Finley and where he could end up if he is medically cleared.

Get clicking, and come on back for more of our mock draft later today!

Ex-Packers CB Tyrone Williams uses past experiences to help today's players - JSOnline
Williams spent time in jail after the Packers' Super Bowl XXXI win, but has been working hard to help others learn from his experiences.

Packers to use tech firm to study injuries - ESPN
SCIENCE!

Sidney Rice medically cleared, could sign quickly - NFL.com
I know this would be an out of the ordinary idea, but do you think it would be worth it for the Packers to sign Sidney Rice? He's been injured almost nonstop, but during the few times he's been on the field for an extended period of time, he has been quite productive.

Jermichael Finley reportedly on Miami Dolphins' radar - NFL.com
Joe Philbin is the obvious connection here, but I still think the leader for Finley would be Seattle if he's cleared to play.

C.J. Spiller trade: Eagles inquired about Bills RB, per report - SBNation.com
The Eagles will be tough enough with LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles in their backfield. Imagine them with Spiller instead of Sproles...yikes.

NFL GMs take every player off their big boards - SBNation.com
Said an anonymous GM: "The value's just not there to waste a high pick on any amateur football players, and you don't get ahead in the NFL by reaching. I don't like anyone and I think they are all divas and overrated."
