Agreed. The issue I'm having with Love, and it may not even have to with him per se and more about what people like about him, is the description of how he throws on the run, etc. Athleticism combined with arm talent.
Despite Mahomes being a unique QB, and Lamar being a different kind of QB, I still say the QB position is designed to be played from the pocket.
I simply haven't seen much discussion on Love's ability....or just as important willingness..... to stay in the pocket and go through his reads, then deliver the ball with great arm talent. I'm sure there are highlights of that, but I want to know if he has a tendency to try to be Mahomes after staying in the pocket for 2 to 3 seconds and gets nervous trying to make a play when he may not have to. Sometimes that can't be dialed back by a coach. I just don't know about Love's prowess from the pocket on a consistent basis. It just hasn't been talked about.
From the draft network's simulator.
I'd love this one too. The depth of the WR class is just crazy.
13 Justin Herbert, QB Oregon
34 Ross Blacklock, IDL TCU
44 Austin Jackson, OT USC
75 Jabari Zuniga, EDGE Florida
112 Myles Bryant, CB Washington
142 Tyler Johnson, WR Minnesota
173 Chase Claypool, WR Notre Dame
190 Jauan Jennings, WR Tennessee
204 Harrison Bryant, TE Florida Atlantic
They are not leaks. They are reports from media.
The reports are NOT coming from the Colts.
Ballard has seen Love in person enough so that there’s no hiding his interest. But we still don’t know how much he likes Love? And we likely won’t know until the draft.
If we DON’T trade up to take Love, that tells us something, doesn’t it?
If Love is there when we pick and we don’t take him, that tells us something, doesn’t it? Just as taking Love at 13 tells us something.
There’s a lot of misinformation out there this time of year. Be skeptical about what you read.
