Happy Friday, Green Bay Packers fans. With a holiday weekend ahead of us, the Packers' players and fans alike can relax for a few days before getting excited about the team finally taking the practice field next week. On Wednesday, May 28th, the team will begin its Organized Team Activities, with all key players expected to be in attendance.

As a reminder, practice on Thursday, May 29th will be open to the public, so head down to Ray Nitschke Field if you're free to check things out.

Before we take a three-day break from curds, here are your links for Friday.

My guess is that he finishes training camp by earning a spot on the Packers' active roster. There's nobody on the team who has a physical frame quite like Hubbard's 6'6", 257, and certainly nobody at that height with the explosiveness to have a 38.5" vertical.

Former NFL DE Stephen White on the Packers' pick: "Safety Ha Ha Clinton Dix brings stability to a Packers secondary that appeared to implode at times last year. He might have been a reach with the 21st pick because he doesn't really jump off the tape for me. If he can be a solid, consistent player in coverage and in run support, Green Bay fans will love the guy."
