The Green Bay Packers opting to use their first-round pick on quarterback Jordan Love turned a lot of heads. That's putting it kindly. With Green Bay seemingly just a piece or two away from a Super Bowl run, picking a development project at QB did was a real head-scratcher.

With Aaron Rodgers playing some of the best football of his career in 2020, the Utah State product's services were not needed. In fact, Love is the only first-round QB since Jake Locker in 2011 to not start a single game for his team, as Reddit user DayOldTurkeySandwich pointed out.

Love actually didn't see a single snap in the 2020 campaign. Locker, at least, saw some action in five games during his 2011 rookie season. To be fair, there were plenty of reasons for this and Love was thrust into a pretty unique circumstance.

But anytime you're drawing unfavorable comparisons to a guy like Locker, who was out of the league after four unremarkable years, it has to be at least a little worrying.

Of course, Rodgers didn't make his first start until his fourth NFL season. We all know how that decision worked out.
