The Rams signed undrafted free agent QB Josh Love who played for San Jose State. Los Angeles continues to look for a backup quarterback, so there is some possibility of him making the roster with a strong training camp. At San Jose State he improved each season, finishing his career in 2019 with a 61 percent completion rate for 3,923 yard (8.7 ypa) for 22 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
Love was a walk on and didn’t become the full time starter until last season, which isn’t what you want to see at a small school. But, he showed good ability inside the pocket when under pressure. He keeps his eyes downfield and makes good decisions despite pressure, which is half the battle of becoming a good quarterback. His real trouble comes from his athleticism, as he’s not going to run away from defenders or thread the needle with a missile-like throw.
What I love about him is his fearlessness in the pocket. He converted pressure to sacks at the lowest rate in the country last season (9.0%) while also earning a 68.6 passing grade while under pressure (ninth best in the country). — Michael Renner, Pro Football Focus
Fantasy football impact
Love has the capacity to play in the NFL due to his instincts in the pocket but he likely doesn’t have the arm to beat out other NFL caliber quarterbacks. If he can stick in the league and develop his physicality while learning how to compete in the NFL, he could land as a backup and spot start when needed, but that is likely his upside.
