Found April 14, 2012 on Packer Fans United:
Folks, you know I'd normally be all over the pre-draft musings which are running amuck this time of year. With the draft only a couple weeks away, well, things kick into high gear for most of the football pundits. And yours truly is generally there among them, at least from the Green Bay Packers side of things. Although, thankfully for myself and my readers, I have avoided going into the round by round mock scenarios. I mean, really, who the heck knows? Let's be honest.
