I don’t think anyone here would proclaim Love would be ready, let alone play, in year one. His physical talent is offset by his deficiencies in other aspects of his game.
The blessing for him, and the Packers, is he doesn’t have to start right away. He will get teaching and will learn from a HOF quarterback for at least 1 year and maybe two.
Hopefully that time allows those parts of his game where he needs to improve, to catch up to his physical talent.

in realty not one QB drafted should play in year one, economics dictate that they do, not talent. I am not a fan of Love but a guy named Rodgers sat also and it payed dividends. I would love to see all QB's sit 2 years to be honest
I agree.

Lombardi very rarely let a first or second year player take the field. He believed that you learn, and gain strength, then you get to play. He wanted to know every player on the field knew what everyone else's assignment was, so they knew how they were to react under various conditions that presented themselves.

Today's game is fast, and complex, so sitting and learning creates good habits, not bad.
Back then though there was no FA you owned players until you did no longer want them so you could sit on them and let them develop as long as you wanted to

Give Aaron Rodgers credit he at least seems to be willing to help Love grow and not be a dick like Favre was to Rodgers his rookie year.
