Cheesehead TV hopes you're not suffering from Apri Fool's Day fatigue, but you won't find any jokes here...
The pro day circuit continues with a key date on Tuesday at Utah State University.
Now that Evan Dietrich-Smith has departed in free agency, perhaps the Packers will be giving more serious consideration to the center position, and a highly rated one will be on display in Tyler Larsen of the Aggies.
Larsen is among a handful of the top-rated true centers in this year's draft class and took part in both the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine earlier this year. He had the second-most bench press reps of any player at the Combine regardless of position with 36.
During the Ted Thompson era in Green Bay, however, it's been rare for the Packers to draft any true centers, instead more frequently choosing to select or sign college tackles and converting them to interior offensive linemen.
Perhaps that trend will change now that there's no guaranteed locks to come away with the starting center position this year, although there's no lack of options. Last week at the NFL Owners Meeting, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy named J.C. Tretter, Don Barclay and even T.J. Lang and Josh Sitton as possibilities.
Also taking part in Utah State's pro day are cornerback Nevin Lawson and safety Maurice Alexander, among others.
One more pro day workout takes place on Tuesday at Tennessee-Chattanooga.
