Cheese Curds, 4/5: Bob Harlan on Eliot Wolf/Ted Thompson; Emmanuel Ogbah is an enigma

What do we make of the athletic but inconsistent pass-rushing specialist from Stillwater?

As the 2016 NFL Draft draws closer day by day, college prospects continue to get picked apart play-by-play and drill by drill. One such player is Oklahoma State's Emmanuel Ogbah, who was featured in multiple places on Monday. He is one of the most impressive athletes in this year's class of pass-rushers, but that athleticism does not always translate to the field.

Meanwhile, the Green Bay Packers' plans for the post-Ted Thompson era continue to be discussed, especially in relation to the moves recently made involving Eliot Wolf. He is of course the son of former Packers GM Ron Wolf, and it seems entirely plausible that the team is setting him up to be Thompson's successor - not that the current GM would ever admit to it.

Read on for that and much more in today's curds.
