Jake Fromm Has No Reason to Return to Georgia After Impressive Sugar Bowl Performance

Georgia got off to a fast start against Matt Rhule and Baylor in the Sugar Bowl and never looked back, as two touchdown passes from Bulldogs quarterback Jake Fromm propelled Georgia to a 26-14 win.

Fromm has long been thought of as one of the top quarterback prospects in the country, and his dominant Sugar Bowl confirmed the fact that he should probably turn pro and declare for the draft, with more uncertainty in those ranks than we expected, pre-Tua injury.

Fromm's completion percentage declined from 67 to 61 percent, and he threw just 24 touchdowns as compared to 30 last year, but this can be attributed to the fact that he lost a lot of talent around him. With Mecole Hardman, Riley Ridley, and Terry Godwin off to the pros, and Jeremiah Holloman kicked off the team, Fromm still managed to lead Georgia to another SEC East title and New Year's Six bowl.

There aren't many QBs this draft as accurate in rhythm as Fromm, and that trait can and will serve him well in the pros.

Fromm is a top three quarterback in Georgia history on numbers alone, and he's done enough to be picked, at minimum, on Day 2 of the NFL draft. If this is the end of his time in Athens, Bulldogs fans can't complain, even if he didn't win them a national championship.
