The 2020 NFL Draft will be a great event for teams to start building for their future. Here is the Jake Fromm 2020 NFL Draft profile.
Size: 6-foot-2, 219 pounds
2019 stats: 2,860 passing yards, 24 passing touchdowns, 5 interceptions, 60.8 percent completion, 7.4 yards per attempt
Fromm had a very successful college career, as he helped the Bulldogs reach a National Championship Game and win a lot of contests over his three seasons with the team. He is now preparing for the NFL as a solid draft prospect.
He wasn’t supposed to start during his freshman season, but Fromm stepped into the starting lineup when Jacob Eason went down with an injury. Fromm passed for 2,615 yards, 24 touchdowns and seven interceptions on 62.5 percent completion, as the Bulldogs made the National Championship Game. His sophomore season, Fromm retained the starting quarterback spot and threw for 2,761 yards, 30 touchdowns and six interceptions on 67.4 percent completion. Georgia went 11-3 with a loss in the Sugar Bowl to Texas that season. For his junior year, Fromm had 2,860 passing yards, 24 touchdowns and five interceptions on 60.8 percent completion. The Bulldogs went 12-2 with a win in the Sugar Bowl over Baylor.
After three seasons in Athens, Fromm decided to go pro. He won’t be one of the first few quarterbacks selected, but should be selected before the middle of the draft is over.
Fromm has great decision-making that was on display for most of his Georgia career. He threw 18 interceptions over his three seasons in college. In his last season with Georgia, he threw just five interceptions. Teams that draft Fromm can trust in the fact that he is not going to go in the game and become a turnover machine.
He has great accuracy, especially to short areas of the field. Fromm has had a completion percentage of above 60 percent in each of his three seasons at Georgia. He anticipates well and leads receivers so that they have enough room to run after the catch. He has nice touch on his passes as well.
His ability to go through his progressions is something that a lot of other prospects can’t do. He can read a defense and then go from one receiver to the next. Fromm has a great mind for football and should be able to recognize what NFL defenses are doing and adjust on the fly.
Arm strength will be the first weakness that comes to everyone’s mind regarding Fromm. The balls he throws can hang in the air, which gives defenders more time to make plays on the ball. Making throws to the opposite sideline also gives him trouble and he will underthrow deep balls.
Fromm is just an average athlete. With current top picks being good athletes at the position, Fromm is more of a traditional pocket passer. He doesn’t often run for first downs and he can’t always evade pass rushers. Fromm also has below-average play strength for the position.
He is not the prototypical size for the quarterback position. Fromm is just 6-foot-2, which is good enough to play in the NFL, but some teams who prefer, big, strong-armed quarterbacks will likely stay away from Fromm in the draft.
