Jake Fromm NFL Draft Destinations

This upcoming draft class as it pertains to quarterbacks is relatively deep, but it's rather difficult to develop a consensus evaluation on Georgia signal caller Jake Fromm, who has decided to forgo his senior season and enter the 2020 NFL Draft.

At best, his arm talent is mundane, and his physical measurables (6-foot-2, 220 pounds), as well as his athleticism, leave a lot to be desired. The Combine won't do the former Bulldog any favors.

It really makes you wonder: what franchise would be the best fit for Fromm? Let's highlight a few that would make sense.

4. Atlanta Falcons

Matt Ryan is still playing at a high level, but 2019 proved that he's on the decline. And no, that isn't a conclusion drawn by just looking up his stats. Most of those were padded in junk time with Atlanta trailing early and often last season. It might be time for general manager Thomas Dimitroff to start thinking about lining up a successor behind Matty Ice, who would prove to be a tremendous educator for Fromm. After all, the Falcons could start saving big bucks if they decide to release Ryan two or three seasons from now.

3. Chicago Bears

Fromm is one of those QBs that would be well off sitting out a season (or two) while being the understudy of a proven NFL gunslinger. However, if there was one team that would give Fromm a real shot at playing time, it's the Chicago Bears. One could argue that Fromm's best two attributes -- accuracy and decision making -- are Mitch Trubisky's most perceptible flaws. Do we remember the magic that Matt Nagy worked with Alex Smith in Kansas City? Fromm is a similar prospect and could thrive in the Windy City.

2. Indianapolis Colts

If 2019 told us anything about the Indianapolis Colts, other than that their offensive line is ELITE, it identified Jacoby Brissett's limited ceiling as a starting NFL quarterback. And let's not forget how awful Brian Hoyer was filling in for Brissett while he was shelved with a knee injury. Indy's offensive line is already intact, meaning Fromm wouldn't be getting trampled while trying to escape the pocket. Further, the Colts love running ball, so Fromm wouldn't have the weight of the world on his shoulders. We couldn't think of a better fit...or can we?

1. New England Patriots

A quarterback with evident physical and athletic limitations that is also deadly accurate? Remind you of anybody? No, we aren't calling Fromm the next Tom Brady, but you couldn't name a better system for the former SEC signal caller if it hit you right in the face. If TB12 returns to New England, Bill Belichick should seriously consider drafting Fromm, whether it be in the first or second round.
