Before the 2019 season, the Georgia quarterback was seen as a possible top pick in the first round of the NFL Draft. However, his stock dropped as the season went on, and he ended up falling farther than originally thought as the draft went on this weekend.

Over the course of his three seasons under center for the Bulldogs, Fromm went on to throw for 8,236 yards, 78 touchdowns and 18 interceptions, while completing 63.3% of his passes.

After leading the Bulldogs to an appearance in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game as a freshman in 2017, Fromm's sophomore year was his best statistical season in the SEC, throwing for 2,761 yards, 30 touchdowns and six interceptions in 14 games played. He also completed a career-high 67.4% of his passes.

However, this season was a bit of a step back for Fromm as he threw for a career-high 2,860 yards, but only completed 60.8% of his passes while throwing for 24 touchdowns and five interceptions. 

Fromm joins a quarterback room in Buffalo that already has starting quarterback Josh Allen, as well as backup Matt Barkley and practice squad quarterback Davis Webb.
