BSS QB Big Board: Georgia | Jake Fromm

SHARE:

The New England Patriots met with Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis on Tuesday. The Patriots are now looking at life after Brady and the question is who will take center once the season opens this fall?

The 21-year-old Fromm starred at Georgia for three seasons, including a win in the 2018 Rose Bowl. Fromm was consistent during his time at Georgia. Last season, he threw for 2,860 yards, 24 touchdowns and five interceptions. 

Fromm who is currently projecting as a Day 2 draft selection and the Patriots could be calling Fromm’s number in the second round. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is not afraid to make a trade at the NFL Draft.  I wouldn’t rule out the Patriots trading out of the first round to draft Fromm. 


Belichick looks for value when he builds his roster, but besides value he looks for intelligent football players.  That is exactly what the Patriots would be getting in Fromm.  The Patriots have a complicated offense and asking a rookie to understand the complexity of the NFL professional offense can be daunting.

What I like about Fromm is he is a throw first quarterback and relies on his arm and his head versus his legs like other professional quarterbacks.  However Patriots fans, if you are expecting Fromm to be throwing Hail Mary’s downfield, think again.  Fromm lacks the arm strength to consistently throw the ball down field.  If you are envisioning Patrick Mahomes in Fromm, keep dreaming. 

While he shows tremendous value in the second or third round, Fromm’s arm strength will be what causes him to fall in the draft.  Belichick is usually a step ahead of most teams, so he could see something in Fromm he could work with in order to develop him into a consistent NFL quarterback. 

Fromm will not be Brady, in fact, he will be a huge downgrade from Brady from a talent perspective. The Patriots shouldn’t hesitate in drafting Fromm now that Brady decided to leave Foxboro.  Fromm will benefit from great coaching from the Patriots.  The Patriots will need to develop Fromm if the draft the Georgia quarterback. 

Despite the Patriots being interested in Fromm, they still have Jarrett Stidham on the roster.  If the Patriots draft a quarterback early in the draft, the team could be signaling they don’t think Stidham is ready.  If Belichick believes Fromm is the next man to lead the Patriots he will make the necessary moves to draft him. 

The Patriots have options with Stidham and Hoyer under center for next season, but will Fromm be the future?
