The Green Bay Packers made one of the most controversial picks in the 2020 NFL Draft when they spent the No. 26 overall pick on a quarterback in Utah's Jordan Love. Instead of adding weapons to support Aaron Rodgers, they elected to draft his hopeful replacement who needs time to develop and is anything but a sure thing moving forward.
That move certainly doesn't look like it's paying off so far, according to recent reports from Packers training camp.
Video surfaced of Love making some good throws to stationary targets early in camp, but apparently live practices have been an entirely different story.
Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports that Love, "has yet to even provide a glimpse at why the Packers traded up to draft him in the first round."
Love, who completed 61.2 percent of his passes in college, was always expected to be a bit of a project player that would take some time to develop at the NFL level. These reports make it sound like he's not even flashing that kind of raw, high-upside potential in Packers camp so far.
If there were any fans in Green Bay that didn't have some doubts about the Love pick before, they may be changing their tune now.
