Name: Jake Fromm
Why the Patriots might draft him: Tom Brady’s departure from New England has left a hole and plenty of questions on the quarterback depth chart. Fromm isn’t a truly elite prospect, but he’s got plenty to like as a possible second-tier draft QB option.
What is he good at: Fromm is a polished, heady, controlled prospect with plenty of experience under his belt leading an SEC squad to championship contention. A three-year starter, Fromm threw for 78 touchdowns compared to just 18 interceptions in his career for the Bulldogs. He may not make a lot of eye-popping plays or throws, but he also won’t make many head-scratching mistakes. Fromm would seem to be a high-floor, low-ceiling prospect who might endear himself to a team looking for more of a game manager than a true playmaker.
And then there is this: Fromm drew national attention long before his career at Georgia – where he unseated fellow 2020 NFL Draft prospect Jacob Eason. An elite two-sport athlete, he was one of the stars of the 2011 Little League World Series, leading his Warner Robbins (Ga.) squad to within a couple games of the title. Fromm was also one of the high school quarterbacks followed for the web and NETFLIX series “QB1: Beyond the Lights.”
