Number Two: Jordan Love
Jordan Love is a six-foot-four quarterback from Utah State. Love seems like everyone’s favorite quarterback prospect not named Joe Burrow in recent reports, but I’m here to tell you his numbers and throwing abilities are a bit deceiving.
Love has a strong arm, there’s no denying that, but how good is his accuracy with that powerful arm?
Jordan Love completed just 31 percent of his deep throws in his college career, making his deep ball relatively ineffective.
Love, in my best comparison, is a lot like Jameis Winston. You will see your flashes of greatness from him, but on the next drive, he will throw an interception that makes you wonder what happened.
The Saints don’t need to draft a quarterback they hope can they coach up and improve, but instead draft a guy they know will succeed at the next level under their guidance.
Jordan Love also struggles with off-target snaps leading to more fumbles and turnovers.
Love is a strong-armed signal-caller, but he comes with his baggage. The Saints need a young quarterback who can sit behind Drew Brees and take over the reins once he’s done, and I’m not sold on Jordan Love being that guy.
