If what Andrew Thomas has to say is accurate, it doesn’t appear that Jake Fromm is in any danger of losing his starting job this fall in Athens.

Georgia’s projected starting left tackle, Thomas locked down the right tackle spot last season before transitioning to the opening created by Isaiah Wynn’s graduation and departure to the NFL, was asked to share his thoughts on Jake Fromm during his recent media availability.

The thing that stands out to Thomas about Fromm? His overall knowledge of the offensive system in place in Athens.

“I would say Jake, his knowledge of the game. It’s crazy some of the things he sees and the plays that he checks to sometimes is just perfect,” Thomas said. “Sometimes we didn’t even see it.”

The Bulldog lineman was then asked for an NFL comparison for Fromm. Without hesitation, Thomas had a name ready.

“Probably Peyton Manning. That’s a joke that we have,” Thomas said. “We do a drill, it’s a check drill where we change the play to whatever you want to call it and Coach Smart tells Jake not to be Peyton Manning — because he tries to get the call perfect every time.”

That’s got to┬ásound promising for Georgia fans. Coming off a tremendous freshman campaign, it doesn’t appear that Fromm has taken his edge off in the least bit despite his initial collegiate success. While Georgia did add an elite prospect to backup Fromm this year, the sophomore’s knowledge of the offense looks to be a tough hurdle for any quarterback to overcome — even one as talented as Fields.

Here is what Thomas had to say about Georgia’s newest freshman phenom.

“Just watching, he’s a really talented kid,” Thomas said about Fields. “He can run, he can throw — everything a quarterback needs, he has it.”

Everything except a Peyton Manning-like grasp of the offense, of course.
