The college coaches of a few new Packers weigh in on their former pupils' new team.

Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

After a few days of learning more and more about the Green Bay Packers' 2015 draft picks, one thing is becoming very clear - this is a group of players who will represent the Packers well off the field. That covers both the film room as well as in the community.

Two players in particular come with glowing recommendations from college coaches, and they appear to be "Packer people" despite not necessarily being in line to start immediately in Green Bay. For one of them, the goal is for him to never have to start a game for the Packers, but he's still taking that in stride.

Check out those stories and much more in today's Curds.
