Jordan Love not worried about living up to pressure of draft status

Jordan Love
Jordan Love was taken No. 26 overall in the NFL Draft, and the Green Bay Packers traded up to get him. Combine that with the fact that Love is expected to eventually replace Aaron Rodgers, and the former Utah State quarterback enters the NFL with tons of pressure and expectations. None of that seems to bother Love.

Love spoke with NFL Media’s Omar Ruiz for an interview and was asked if he felt pressure to justify Green Bay’s selection of him. He seems ready to meet the challenge.

“No matter where I would have landed, that was the goal for me. You ought to go out there and prove yourself… It’s a job, you’ve got to be able to keep that,” Love said.

Rodgers spoke on Friday about the pick and admitted he was not “thrilled” about it, but said he did not hold hard feelings towards Love. Green Bay must believe in Love’s talent so much that they wanted to make sure to get him, even if they currently have a very capable quarterback.

Based on his mentality, Love sounds like he will be well-equipped to handle the pressure.
