QB Jordan Love
Throughout the historically deep quarterback class in this year’s draft, there might not be a more polarizing prospect than Utah State’s Jordan Love.
Love’s measurables and traits have more than a few draft analysts foaming at the mouth to see him play at the next level. But for every positive that Love’s height, mobility, and strong-arm bring to his game, there is still a mountain of underperforming college stats that cast a shadow over his game.
Love’s Junior season, his final one in college, saw the Aggies quarterback throw for an FBS-high 17 interceptions to just 20 touchdown passes. This marked a major step back for the quarterback, who many saw as a bonafide star after his Sophomore season when he threw for 32 touchdowns to six interceptions.
Even in his better year, accuracy has never been the defining part of Love’s game. After completing a career-high 64 percent of his passes in year two, he completed just under 62 percent his Junior year, ranking 50th in the FBS.
At the combine, Love has a chance to prove that his traits overshadow the concerns of his decision making, and quiet down any concerns there may be about his accuracy. Whether Ryan Tannehill stays a Titan or leaves in free agency, Tennessee would be wise to look closely at Love as a possible plan for the future.
