Former Georgia QB Jacob Eason makes NFL Draft decision
Former Georgia QB Jacob Eason left for Washington once Jake Fromm took over as the Bulldogs’ starter.
In his one year as Washington’s starter in 2019, Eason threw for 3,132 yards, 23 touchdowns and 8 interceptions while leading the Huskies to an 8-5 record.
Now, as the 2020 NFL Draft approaches, Eason has made the somewhat surprising decision to forgo his senior season and enter the draft:

Washington coach Chris Petersen retired after this season, so it’s unclear how much of a role that played in Eason’s decision to leave.
However, if he has a big performance at the NFL Combine, Eason could still work his way into first-round consideration this April.
