Early reports out of Green Bay Packers training camp about backup quarterback Jordan Love have been positive for the most part. His throws seem to have more zip on them and his deep ball has looked much improved. The bad news is that Love is still clearly struggling in one key area, though.
Green Bay Packers Training Camp
Love has failed to impress when it comes to two-minute drills. On Monday, the 23-year-old threw a disappointing interception that ended the second-team offense's attempt to score. His work on Thursday showed the same tendencies. Loves' two-minute drill ended with a turnover on downs.
Packers beat writer Ryan Wood explained that Love's performance was full of errant throws and showcased an inability to feel pressure in the pocket. Of course, that is not something Green Bay fans want to hear about their potential future leader. Love continues to be an up-and-down player.
It's safe to say that a lot of attention will be on Love during the NFL preseason. The 2020 first-round pick could be thrown into regular season action in 2023 if Aaron Rodgers decides to step away from the team or the game entirely. That means his preseason snaps could act as an audition of sorts.
Love started one game for the Packers in 2021, which ended as a 13-7 road loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The Utah State product completed 19 of his 34 pass attempts for 190 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception. He finished the 2021 season with a 2:3 TD:INT ratio overall.
For now, Green Bay odds set at +1200 to win Super Bowl 57, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
