10 days have passed since the 2015 NFL Draft concluded, and NFL rookies have been spending that time working hard on studying playbooks and getting acclimated to their new lives as professionals. One such player for the Green Bay Packers is Jake Ryan, who despite the pressure placed on him by the position he will play in the NFL and the Packers' lack of depth there is not feeling the pressure to do too much too early.

Along with a look at Ryan, we find today some news regarding the Packers Hall of Fame induction ceremony for Brett Favre, while his successor took to the set of Jeopardy! to try to outsmart an astronaut and a TV personality.

Check out those stories and more in today's curds.
