The saga between quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers organization continues to dominate the NFL world, but Jordan Love doesn't seem to be worried about it. He is working as the QB1 during minicamp and ProFootballFocus projects a big statistical season for the second-year pro if he is named the starter.

There is a chance that Love starts all 16 regular season game for the Packers next season and he has the talent to succeed if that's the case. Overall, PFF projects Love to throw for 4,149 yards, 24 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. Those totals aren't so bad for a player yet to see a single NFL snap.

In fact, Love's projected passing total would've finished as the 11th-highest mark in the NFL last season and ahead of proven quarterbacks like Matthew Stafford and Kyler Murray. However, PFF expects him to struggle with turnovers as 15 interceptions would've tied for the league lead in 2020.

Love had a TD-INT ratio of 60-29 across three college seasons played at Utah State (38 starts). He comes with a lot of positive upside and simply needs an opportunity to develop at the NFL level. His wait may finally be up after being drafted by Green Bay in the first round over a year ago.

Of course, this all depends on whether or not Rodgers shows up to training camp and takes back the starting role he has held for the last 13 seasons.

The Packers head into the fall with odds set at -125 to win the NFC North division and odds set at +1700 to win the Super Bowl, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
