—Cited for marijuana possession in December 2019 (case was dismissed in January).
—Slow trigger when processing reads and must learn to throw receivers open vs. throwing to the open receiver.
—Gambles throwing into small spaces and trusts his arm too much, which leads to interceptions.
—Utah State scheme allowed many easy throws (screens, crossers) that made his job easier.
—Major drop in production from 2018 to 2019 with new staff (6 interceptions to 17).
Love is a case study in traits vs. production. He has the traits scouts love (arm strength, mobility, big-play mentality), but he threw 17 interceptions in 2019. No matter which team drafts him, Love is a sit-and-develop type quarterback, not a rookie starter. He must work on cleaning up his decision-making while also growing into a professional quarterback after coming from a conference where his arm strength and athleticism were good enough to win. Love is a major boom-bust prospect who could end up being the best quarterback from the class or a journeyman backup.
