If you aren’t already on the Jordan Love hype train, there is still time to hop on board.
The former Utah State quarterback has drawn rave reviews since he declared for the 2020 NFL Draft, most notably during Senior Bowl week.
Things had gone quiet ahead of college pro day workouts, until early Tuesday evening, that is.
On the latest episode of NFL Total Access, former Houston Texans quarterback David Carr offered effusive praise of Love, who was discussed in the same breath as LSU signal-caller and Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow and Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa.
“It is just effortless for him,” Carr said of Love, whom he has known for years due to their shared Southern California roots. “He has that Patrick Mahomes ability to where he doesn’t have to have perfect feet or perfect mechanics and he’ll make the throw.”
Carr didn’t stop there and talked about Love’s up-and-down junior season and the coaching change he and the Aggies went through the past season, noting that Love contemplated a transfer.
Love obviously did not leave Utah State for another school, and now is positioned to be one of the first quarterbacks taken in the draft.
“He’s an extremely talented kid, and if he gets in the right place and they can groom him. He has all the tools,” said Carr. “You can pretty much make him into whatever you want him to be if he has the desire to do so, which he does. I know the guy. He works really hard.”
