Georgia’s Jake Fromm Has Serious Issues, Says ESPN
Georgia’s Jake Fromm has serious issues that he will need to contend with heading into the 2020 NFL Draft, says ESPN.
A few months back, Fromm made the decision to leave the Bulldogs after his junior year to turn pro.
Over the course of his three years at Georgia, he recorded 8,236 yards and 76 scores. Unfortunately, at least timing-wise, his least successful season in terms of accuracy came last year. He ended up completing just under 61 percent of his passes in 2019.
This past week, the NFL Scouting Combine took place. Many players, sort of like Fromm, participated in various events designed to showcase their skill set to various league executives.
The hope from many in Fromm’s camp was that he would use the opportunity to really distinguish himself in the eyes of league execs – but apparently that did not end up happening.
While some guys like Clemson linebacker Isaiah Simmons really made a name for themselves at the Combine, Fromm seemingly did the opposite.
According to ESPN NFL Draft expert Todd McShay, Fromm’s passes were “floating” and he had a “he’s a brutal evaluation.”
“With Fromm, he comes out as a freshman and gets that job because of the injury and never relinquishes and has 5-stars transferring (Jacob Eason and Justin Fields) because he just turns into the guy,” he said.
“The past couple years, he had no receivers. With 3 injuries up front, protection was inconsistent, but you go back and study the tape when he had (talent at Georgia) on offense and he made plays.”
In McShay’s estimation, Fromm will likely be a Day 2 selection when it is all said and done.
At the end of the day, he has enough intangibles for someone to take a chance on him. Will it ultimately pay off for that team? Time will tell.
