Rhetorical: If Packers were offered a first round pick for Jordan Love, should they take it?


Recommended Posts

I got to thinking about this. There are plenty of QB needy teams, and I think the case could be made if Jordan Love was in this year's draft, he would be fighting with Justin Fields for third QB off the board. That has the capacity to be the third overall pick. There are plenty of teams getting frustrated with the lack of quarterbacks available to the point that Lance and Mac Jones are discussed being top 10 picks. So what if someone picked up the phone......the 9ers, Falcons, Eagles, Dolphins, someone else asked for Love for their first, what's the thought?

If you were one of the said top 10 teams who needed a QB, and Lawrence, Zac Wilson, and Justin Fields were off the board, do you think he would be a superior option to Lance or Mac Jones?

Im trying to find the "line of return" here.  What about Patriots at 15? Redskins at 19?  Do you still say yes to either of those?

Considering how Rodgers played last year, and that Love hasn't played much at all...I think that has to be a "yes". Maybe with something else thrown in later.

I guess that's where I should have started the thread, the 11-20 range. If a mod could amend the title with that intent displayed, I would appreciate it. I guess 3-10 range was blatantly obvious.  For Patriots, Redskins, any other QB needy teams in the 11-20 range, are you happy with that first rounder for Love or are you pretty upset?

If Green Bay gets a first round pick for Love, after 20-something teams passed on him last year and showing absolutely nothing in Green Bay's practices, it would be a massive coup and they should absolutely take it.

It sounds like Love hasn't really been bowling them over in Green Bay.  He couldn't even take over the #2 QB spot last year, after being a first round pick that they traded up for.  If someone offered them their first round pick for him, the Packers would probably be very wise to take the deal.  They could always reinvest that pick in another prospect who has a better chance of succeeding and then restart the clock on his rookie deal at year 1.

that sounds so striking when you say it like that full of confidence yet not realizing that practices were closed for COVID and absolutely NOBODY knows what Jordan Love looked like Green Bay's practices that wasn't on the field.

this has absolutely zero meaning.

funny how GB doesn't even use the lowest possible salary offer to keep the "#2 QB" from last year. Love got a redshirt year, it means nothing about how he compared to Tim Boyle. Suggesting that Love wasn't as good of a QB on the field as Boyle was is unwarranted. There were zero expectations that he'd "win" the #2 QB job (who is better at holding a clipboard and giving live feedback to the starting QB).

This is embarrassing. Love couldn't even get activated for the playoffs.

Depends on how he’s looked for them - only GB would know that, for the most part. 

This.

This discussion has happened like 4 times on the GB forum already and eventually everyone finally comes to understand and accept even someone so wise and brilliant and all-knowing as @Blue cannot come up with a reasonable trade scenario for Love exactly because nobody (except one side) knows what he's worth.

If he looks great: GB won't trade him

If he looks bad: GB can't trade him because every team would become immediately suspicious why they're trading away a first round pick they had no intention of getting value out of in year 1 anyway

He's, at the same time, worth several top 10 picks and none at all. He is Schrödinger's trade value.

His worth is in the toilet because he couldn't beat out Tim Boyle for the No. 2 job. He was ticketed for Round 2 before the Packers traded up for him last year and that's probably the ceiling of what they could get for him right now.
