Kind of a surprise, as he really didn't have a college career worthy of a team investing a draft pick.
Whats interesting about Love is his ability to play both DE and linebacker.
He was 6'3" and 255 pounds at his Pro Day.
I did find this quote from the team website following the March 26th Pro Day:
Lots of NFL scouts "said they'll be calling soon" after watching the 255-pound Mike Love showcase his versatility at pro day. "I think what they really like is I can do both linebacker and defensive line. They said I have pretty good hips and I showed my athleticism."
Perhaps a clue as to the type of athlete that Bettcher wants in his defense.
I also attached an article about Mike Love. Link
