Utah State’s Jordan Love is a lock to be drafted by an NFL team when the 2020 NFL Draft gets underway on April 23. But what will that team be getting in the deep-throwing Love?

Aggies head coach Gary Andersen joined CBS Sports Radio to talk all things Love with Zach Gleb.

“Well, I think they’re going to get a very, very unique and special arm strength. Um, if we just talk sheer athletic ability, he can make all the throws and he can adjust the throws. A lot of kids can throw the ball really hard. A lot of the kids can throw the ball in good spots, but he can adjust his speed. He can adjust from the all three levels, from the short routes to the intermediate routes to the deep routes. And he can change the speed. He also can let the go of the ball at different areas. He doesn’t have to have it in a perfect position in the pocket and the perfect throwing motion to get the ball out where it needs to be, which I think is unique for him. He’s quite a good athlete and I think what he does is he plays the game of football with really good angles,” Andersen said.

Andersen also praised Love’s mentality.

“And when I say that, I mean that in his throw game and I also mean that in his ability to escape. He has a great feel of understanding what the angles are of the defenders that are closing in on him and gaining what he can, but yet stay safe as a quarterback. And he showed that with his legs all year long. From a mental standpoint, this young man has been through a lot in his life and he’s handled it extremely well. His mother is an absolute superstar as a mom in my opinion. The kid has just grown up in an environment of dealing with, uh, if it’s adversity, we’ll deal with it. If it’s great, we’ll deal with it. And he stays pretty, pretty, pretty even if you will, even-keeled kid. And the good and the bad,” Andersen said.
