Buffalo Bills: Breaking down top plays in college from Jake Fromm
This is a breakdown of some of the top plays in college by Buffalo Bills’ fifth round pick Jake Fromm.
The backup quarterback position has been one that has been in dire need of addressing for the Buffalo Bills. With their fifth-round selection in the 2020 NFL Draft, they did exactly that, selecting Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm.
The immediate reaction to this was selection was divided. Some fans saw this selection as the end of Josh Allen, some saw it was a waste of a pick and the rest were left dumbfounded that the Bills would even draft a quarterback. Once cooler heads prevailed and enough time has passed to the point where the discussion about Fromm replacing Allen has been completely squashed, we have come to learn that this pick was more about helping Allen rather than bringing him competition.
While at Georgia, Fromm climbed the leaderboards in many categories and as a result left his mark on the program. His career 8,224 passing yards rank fourth on the University of Georgia’s all-time list along with his 78 career touchdown passes, placing him in second place on the university’s all-time list.
When looking at the numbers alone, Fromm certainly has the stats to back the notion that he could be a productive NFL quarterback. The knock against Fromm and a large reason as to why get fell so far in the draft is the lack of physical tools he has at the position. Though he is a tremendous talent at reading and analyzing the play on the field, the arm strength and talent are not there. This played a major factor as to why the projected 3-4th rounder fell to the Bills at round five.
