Packers select Jordan Love with No. 26 pick of NFL Draft

The Green Bay Packers selected quarterback Jordan Love with the No. 26 pick of the 2020 NFL Draft on Thursday.

It was the most shocking pick of the draft considering the Packers have Aaron Rodgers with two seasons remaining on his contract. Most people would have thought the team would have taken a skill position player to help Rodgers out on offense.

Love, 21, was born in Bakersfield, Calif., where he attended Liberty High School. Despite totaling 2,148 yards and 24 passing touchdowns, Utah State was the only FBS program to offer him a scholarship.
