  The only other time a Utah State quarterback was selected in the first round of the NFL draft, he lasted 16 seasons in the league, started 66 games and threw for 12,896 yards and 84 touchdowns. Jordan Love is hopeful to embark on his own lengthy run in the NFL and he took his first step Thursday night by being scooped up by Green Bay Packers in the opening round of the 2020 NFL draft. Love, who was taken 26th overall, joins Bill Munson - the No. 7 overall pick in 1964 - as the only USU signal callers to hear their names called in the first round of this annual event. "It was one of those things where he was the best player left and, again, we're excited to get him," said Brian Gutekunst, Green Bay's general manager, in a conference call. "We think he has a really good future in this league and he's coming from a place where he's done some really good things, but he has a lot to learn too. And I think we're a very good fit for his development."

The Packers originally had the 30th pick, but traded up to select Love. Green Bay's starting quarterback is future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers, who is a 15-year veteran, eight-time Pro-Bowler and two-time NFL MVP. Led by the 36-year-old Rodgers, the Packers went 13-3 last season and lost to San Francisco in the NFC championship game. "For me, I was just hoping to (get drafted)," Love said in a conference call. "That was my goal for the first part of this, just make it and figure out how to handle that wherever I go. But being in this situation, I would say that this is a really good situation to be in - not being thrown out there (immediately). I'm behind one of the great quarterbacks of the league, so just being able to sit behind him and learn, what's better than that? So I think this is going to be a really good situation for me." - Herald Journal Tribune
