Number Three: Jordan Love
In Mel Kiper’s latest mock draft, he had the Saints picking Utah State’s quarterback Jordan Love. Jordan Love is being hyped up similar to the way 49ers Jimmy Garoppolo was leading up to the draft.
Love is a little known prospect with a ton of potential. In three years at Utah State, Love tossed 8,600 yards while completing 61.2 percent of his passes. In that span, Love also tossed 60 touchdowns to just 29 interceptions.
Love struggled a bit in 2019 as his surrounding talent dropped quite a bit. Love had 20 touchdowns and 17 interceptions last season while tossing 3,400 yards.
Jordan Love would be a great quarterback to bring in and directly compete with Taysom Hill for the starting job in the preseason. His arm talent is incredible and he is projected to go in the first round in almost every mock draft out there.
The Saints could completely start fresh and draft a quarterback rather than signing a veteran at the position.
