A rookie quarterback’s transition to the NFL is already a difficult task. Having to do so without a preseason, specifically for quarterbacks expected to sit in waiting behind an established starter, only adds to the challenges. However, for the Green Bay Packers and Jordan Love, there could be a few benefits to their union in this specific offseason despite the negatives of a COVID-impacted football landscape. And perhaps those advantages help further justify his selection in the first round.
There is little doubt the Packers were in on Love as a prospect for quite some time.
