Jordan Love, QB, Utah State

  • 40-Yard Dash– 4.74 (7th)
  • Vertical Jump– 35.5 inches (Tied for 2nd)
  • Broad Jump– 118 inches (5th)
  • 3 Cone Drill– 7.21 (6th)
  • 20-Yard Shuttle– 4.52 (Tied for 9th)

Jordan Love flashed his athleticism, size and arm strength yet again. He tested well in the drills, but where he shined the most was in the on-field passing drills. His deep ball is a thing of beauty and he showed it numerous times.

After a down year, where his team went 7-6, Love has been climbing draft boards with his performances at the Combine and the Senior Bowl. We’ve seen what Love can do with talent around him. In 2018, he threw for 3,567 yards with 32 touchdowns and only six interceptions.

When asked about his 17 interceptions this past season, Love referred to them as “learning experiences“. He went on to say how sometimes he was trying to do too much on certain plays, which resulted in a bad decision.

Zierlein gives him a prospect grade of 6.33, saying he will be a starter within his first two seasons. Love has tremendous upside, with many people comparing him to Patrick Mahomes, and he’s shown what he is capable of in 2018.

Love has met with the Los Angeles Chargers and with an impressive combine outing, could be in consideration for the sixth pick. Putting him on this Chargers roster and improving the offensive line in the draft and free agency would put him in a great situation to succeed.

I should probably tweet some actual news: Love said he talked to the #Chargers
