Let's face it - today belongs to college football, not the NFL. It's National Signing Day, the biggest day on the college football recruiting calendar. Therefore, the pros tend to take a back seat.

However, with unheralded players around the country signing their letters of intent today, today's curds have some parallels. We look at undrafted free agents to see what impact they have played in the Packers' roster construction as well as that of this year's Super Bowl teams. Plus, we get a look at one Packer who was a walk-on in college, and find a projection of how he will fit in on the team next season.

There's that and much more in today's curds. Enjoy!
