Jake Fromm declares for 2020 NFL Draft

On Tuesday afternoon, Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm declared for the 2020 NFL Draft. Fromm made his announcement via his Twitter account. 

Fromm was 35-6 as a starter and led the Georgia Bulldogs to three consecutive SEC East division crowns and an SEC championship.

As a true freshman, Fromm burst onto the scene in 2017. He took over for an injured Jacob Eason, who later transferred to the University of Washington. Fromm guided the Bulldogs to the school’s first SEC Championship since 2005 that season and a win in the Rose Bowl. 

Georgia would go on to lose the National Championship to Alabama in a 26-23 overtime thriller. 

While the Dawgs would never make it to the championship game again, Fromm kept his team near the top of the rankings. 

Over his three years at Georgia, Fromm completed 63 percent of his passes and tallied 8,236 yards, 78 touchdowns and 18 interceptions. 

Fromm posted a career-high 30 touchdown passes his sophomore season, and completed nearly 70 percent of his passes that year. 

As a junior, Fromm’s production dropped some, but that was largely blamed on the lack of receiver talent around him. This season, Fromm posted his lowest completion percentage and average-yards-per-attempt, but he did throw for 2,860 yards and 24 touchdowns. 

Georgia’s offense relied heavily on D’andre Swift this season. 

NFL Draft Stock: Jake Fromm

There was some question as to whether or not Jake Fromm would return to Georgia for his senior season, especially considering the other quarterbacks in this NFL Draft class. Joe Burrow, Tua Tagovailoa, Justin Herbert, Jordan Love and Jacob Eason are all part of this class as well. 

At 6’2″, 220-pounds, Fromm has a solid NFL frame. He’s an accurate passer who has done well against future NFL talent in pressurized situations. He has a very good touchdown-to-interception ration (78-to-18, which is more than 4-to-1). 

He doesn’t have a huge arm but he improved as a downfield passer over his time at Georgia. 

It’s difficult to slot Fromm at this point. But if Burrow, Tagovailoa and Herbert are all sure-fire first rounders, Fromm could be as well. Fromm, Love and Eason make up the second-tier of quarterbacks in the 2020 class and they could each be a Day 1 pick or an early Day 2 pick.
