Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for April 3, 2014

Draft. Free Agency. There isn't much more to discuss at this point.

Kevin C. Cox

I hope you came looking for news about Free Agency or the NFL Draft, because that's all we've got for today's cheese curds. All the news about the Green Bay Packers recently has covered those two topics, and with good reason; still, it would be nice to talk about a little on-field news once in a while. Sadly, we'll have to wait until the first round of OTAs sometime after April 21st.

Until then, eat up all the draft and free agency news you can!

2014 NFL Draft: Taking a look at where Mike Mayock hit and missed over the years -
The thing I take away from this breakdown is this: the 2009 draft was really thin at defensive tackle. B.J. Raji was the only one of Mayock's top 5 that year who has made any substantial impact in the NFL, and even he has been disappointing in recent years.
