Packers trade up for Love | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

The Packers traded up to select Utah State QB Jordan Love with the 26th overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft. This comes 15 years after Green Bay drafted Aaron Rodgers to sit behind Brett Favre. Love is much more project than NFL-ready prospect. He has prototypical size (6’3, 224 pounds), a big arm and tested as a 76th percentile athlete at the Combine. “He has the most physical upside of any of [this year’s QBs],” an anonymous scout told The Athletic’s Bob McGinn. But Love is coming off an ugly 2019 campaign that saw him post a 62% completion rate with 20 TDs and 17 INTs. His 70.6% adjusted completion rate ranked 67th among draft-eligible QBs, according to Pro Football Focus. He also ranked 101st in PFF’s turnover-worthy play rate. In his defense, Love was much better with a stronger supporting cast back in 2018, tallying a 64% completion rate with 32 TDs and just 6 INTs. There’s big ‘bust’ potential here. But if Love hits, his combination of arm and athleticism will give him exciting fantasy upside. He’ll obviously sit behind Rodgers for now. Rodgers is 36 years old and has 4 years remaining on his current contract.
