Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for March 30, 2015

New, comments

Ready for the draft yet? No? Good, because we've got exactly 31 days to go.

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The 2015 NFL Draft is exactly one month away.

That's right - depending on your perspective and opinion of the draft process, either there are only 31 days left until the draft or there is an agonizing one more month of analysis and mock drafts to sit through. In either case, we will be working diligently on our prospect profiles over the next four-plus weeks as we try to get you and us as prepared as possible for those intense three days from April 30th to March 2nd.

Of course, Ted Thompson is light-years ahead of us, as he most likely already has his board set up and is spending the next month fine-tuning it. Keep calm and Trust Ted, and we'll end up in good shape.

At least that's the plan, anyway. On to the curds!

With that in mind, the Packers would be wise to add another running back behind Lacy and James Starks. Personally, I still like the idea of Nebraska's Ameer Abdullah adding a versatile, pass-catching threat out of the backfield.

In other words, don't trade up, which shouldn't be a difficult plan for Ted to follow.

Sunday conversation: Is Clay Matthews an inside or outside LB? - ESPN
To summarize, he's likely to be both in 2015. Unless the Packers find someone in the draft who they're comfortable starting inside on day one, look for Clay to be used much like he was in the second half of last year.

Medical timeout rule is going to cause controversy | Packers.com
Apparently Vic thinks that players are going to fake concussions to get their team a timeout. I do agree with him, however, that Georgia Tech tight end Darren Waller is someone to watch on day 3 of the draft.
