Georgia QB Jake Fromm, who has led the Bulldogs to three consecutive SEC East titles, announced today that he will forego his senior year and enter the 2020 NFL draft.
Fromm published the decision via social media.
ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. ranked Fromm as the fifth-best quarterback eligible for the 2020 draft, behind LSU’s Joe Burrow, Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa, Oregon’s Justin Herbert and Washington’s Jacob Eason.
Fromm led the ‘Dawgs to a 35-6 overall record as a starter, and his 41 total starts were the most for any quarterback in the FBS this past season.
Fromm is widely regarded as an excellent pro prospect. He completed more than 60% of his passes in all three of his seasons at Georgia; his numbers did dip in 2019, after Georgia lost its top five wide receivers from the previous season, but Fromm still completed 60.8% for 2,860 yards with 24 touchdowns and five interceptions.
As a true freshman in 2017, Fromm was a huge factor in leading Georgia to their first SEC title in over a decade when he was pushed in to the starting role after an injury to Eason – who later transferred to Washington – in the season opener.
