3 reasons drafting Jordan Love actually makes perfect sense for the Packers

It's been a much criticized pick, but here's why drafting Jordan Love actually makes perfect sense for the Green Bay Packers.

2. Love Is An Upgrade To The Depth Chart

Love enters the league with the same amount of regular season NFL pass attempts as the other two quarterbacks behind Rodgers anywhere in the Packers’ organization-Tim Boyle and 2019 practice squader Manny Wilkins. That says it all, and the last time Rodgers missed time (2017) Brett Hundley offered 10 games (nine starts) of extensively mediocre play.

Based solely on raw talent, Love offers something Boyle in particular can’t. If Rodgers were to be sidelined for any length of time, the Packers are in a better position now.

  1. Zero WRs? Who wrote this, Packers PR Dept? The pre-draft consensus was this was a deep draft for WR. One of every shape and kind. I’m fact that was proven true when 16 WRs went in the first 3 rounds. I don’t know what it’s called when you start with a predetermined opinion and then spin everything to support your story, but it sucks for the reader. Green Bay is a soap opera now, enjoy it.
