2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Jordan Love, QB, Utah State Aggies

Career Snapshot
Three-year starter who earned Second Team All-Mountain West honors and completed 64 percent of his passes for 3,567 yards and 32 touchdowns with six interceptions as a sophomore in 2018. Named Honorable Mention All-Mountain West and completed 61.9 percent of his passes for 3,402 yards and 20 touchdowns with 17 interceptions as a junior. Arrested for marijuana possession in December 2019.

Positives
Athletic passer with a strong arm who displays bigtime NFL potential. Patient, goes through progressions and passes the ball to secondary targets. Throws the ball with an over-the-top delivery, airs out deep passes and gets throws through tight windows. Flashes the ability to precisely place passes into receivers’ hands and keep the ball away from defenders. Effectively sets up screen throws and puts touch on passes when necessary. Athletic and easily picks up yardage with his legs. Runs only as a last resort.

Negatives
Slow to set up in the pocket and does not react well to pressure. Makes poor choices and puts the ball up for grabs on occasion. Must improve his ball security. Inconsistent with his accuracy. Passes can be all over the place at times.

Analysis
Love looked like a franchise quarterback after the 2018 season, but he watched his game take a step back last year. He pressed and tried to take too much on his shoulders throughout the 2019 season, which ended up in disaster. Love had a solid week of practice at the Senior Bowl, tested well at the NFL Combine and comes with great upside, but he will need to be properly coached and developed.
