A pair of Miami prospects get broken down in today's curds, and one is connected to the Packers at #30.

Though they only went 6-7 a year ago, the Miami Hurricanes have numerous players in this year's Draft who are expected to make an impact in the NFL. As many as three Hurricanes have been mentioned as possible first-rounders, and due to positional needs, the Green Bay Packers have been prominently connected to one of those player in particular.

In today's curds, we have stories dealing with two of those Hurricanes, while the third, offensive lineman Ereck Flowers, is actually the most likely to go in round one. Find that and much more draft news in today's curds below.
