NFC Notes: Jordan Love, Caleb Williams, Bears, Lions, Packers


Bears first-round QB Caleb Williams discussed how he’s measuring his progress.

“First, I ask questions. I ask questions to Coach. I ask about my progression, I ask where he wants me to be, where I should be, and then obviously I have my own goal set for myself and that’s to be perfect. Obviously you strive for something like that and you don’t ever reach it, but you keep striving for it. Whether it’s a day that I like or a day that I don’t, there’s always good and bad in it, so just finding my balance and reaching and striving for my goal,” Williams said, per Courtney Cronin.

Packers QB Jordan Love said his largest focus this offseason is “staying poised in the pocket” and feels he drifted too often last year. 

“There’s always little things,” Love said, via PackersWire. “The biggest thing for me was staying poised in the pocket, just staying balanced in the pocket. Sometimes I get out of whack with my feet and I might start drifting in the pocket a little too much. Just pocket awareness, making smaller moves, understanding when I might need to get out of there.”

Love explained he wants to make “smaller movements” when navigating the pocket. 

“Just pocket movement, making smaller movements,” Love said.
