After an impressive outing at the NFL Scouting Combine, Utah State quarterback Jordan Love has caught the attention of many teams. Apparently one of those organizations includes the Green Bay Packers.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Packers were among the teams that have been virtually in contact with Love. This is the process teams have to use in place of formal in-person arrangements as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 2018 season was when Love caught the attention of NFL scouts as a possible draft prospect to watch in 2019. During that campaign, he completed 267 of 417 pass attempts (64% completion rate), 3,567 yards, 32 touchdowns, and just six interceptions.
There was a coaching change that occurred before Love entered his final season at Utah State in addition to a significant depletion in supporting cast quality. For reference, he completed 293 of his 473 pass attempts (61.9% completion rate) for 3,402 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 17 interceptions in 2019.
The reputation for Love as an NFL Draft prospect took somewhat of a hit as a result of throwing 17 interceptions last season. He managed to create momentum for himself by having an impressive outing at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis and is considered a great developmental option.
With that being said, there are three reasons Jordan Love to the Packers makes perfect sense.
