Happy Friday, Green Bay Packers fans. Another week is drawing to a close, inching us ever-closer to another training camp. Of course, we still have OTAs and minicamp to get through first, so stay tuned for those events over the next two weeks.

While we look ahead to real, full-contact practices, the Packers' roster is a hot topic, both in regards to players who will need some new deals as well as how it stacks up around the NFL. You'll find that and more in today's curds.

High Five: Who are the greatest Packers that never were? |
Here's a great look back through Packers history to identify five players whose careers could have been huge stars if not for injuries early on.

Packers' roster ranked surprisingly low - ESPN
This was discussed in another thread, but after analyzing the Packers' roster player-by-player, Pro Football Focus ranked the Packers 8th in the NFL, behind teams like the Eagles, Patriots, and Bengals.

Making up for lost time | ESPN Wisconsin
With Casey Hayward looking to be fully back from hamstring issues last year, a dime package consisting of Sam Shields, Tramon Williams, Hayward, and Micah Hyde (all healthy) sounds niiiiiiiiiice.

NFL players in contract years who could cash in -
Tramon Williams is on this list, and could earn himself a big payday if he plays like he did in the second half of 2013.

NFL has 2 sets of dates, 3 cities in mind for 2015 Draft -
If it's in either Chicago or New York, APC would very feasibly be able to have one of our writers in attendance. Our fingers are crossed!
