The wait is over! Jake Fromm finally off the board as Buffalo Bills select him in Round 5
Heading into the 2020 NFL Draft, many thought Georgia QB Jake Fromm could be selected in the second round.
Not only was he still on the board at the end of Round 2 — he also didn’t hear his name called in Round 3. As we entered Saturday’s draft action, the free fall continued in Round 4.
Then, Round 4 came and went and Fromm still didn’t have an NFL home. However, he finally heard his name called in Round 5, when the Buffalo Bills took him with the No. 167 overall pick.
Fromm saw his numbers dip this past season, throwing for a career-high 2,860 yards, but dropping from 30 touchdowns in 2018 to 24 in 2019. His completion percentage also plummeted from 67.4% in 2018 to 60.8% in 2019. The Georgia offense was without some key receivers, but Fromm’s performance at the NFL Combine didn’t do anything to boost NFL teams’ confidence in his arm.
Now, he’ll go into a situation in Buffalo where Josh Allen is the starter. Can Fromm make it to the top backup spot before the 2020 season begins?
The important thing is that Fromm’s long wait is now over. Now, it’ll be up to him to prove everyone wrong at the NFL level and show that he should have been drafted much higher.
