Jake Fromm, QB, Georgia

Speaking of small hands, height concerns and uninspiring sprint speeds, our next loser of the NFL combine is University of Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm.

Given his recent fall from grace, it’s easy to forget Fromm was in the first-round conversation just six months prior. With quarterbacks at a premium in today’s NFL, it’s always possible Fromm could still hear his name called on Day 1 of next month’s draft, but it’s likely such a decision would soon be regretted.

After a promising 2018 campaign, Fromm did everything he was asked to do for the No. 4-ranked Bulldogs in 2019, which mostly comprised of getting the ball into the hands of one of Georgia’s cadre of running backs.

The third-year quarterback game-managed his team to 12 victories from the confines of a clean pocket, but in somewhat unorthodox fashion; Fromm averaged just 7.4 yards per pass attempt and threw five interceptions in 2019, but was inaccurate on many of his short attempts, which resulted in a completion percentage of just over 60 percent.

Fromm performed as expected during individual quarterback drills, but his lackluster measurements at the NFL combine were a hot topic of conversation — particularly his lack of height and his surprisingly small hands.  Fromm then topped off his combine performance with the slowest 40-yard-dash time among participating QBs.

The NFL combine confirmed that Fromm’s mobility issues and lack of an NFL-caliber arm will likely cap his ceiling to that of a backup or journeyman quarterback.
