Brace yourselves, Georgia fans. The Jake Fromm hype train has left the station and it’s not stopping anytime soon.
ESPN’s Dan Graziano predicted Friday that Fromm would be selected by the Cleveland Browns with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
This isn’t analysis from Mel Kiper Jr. or Todd McShay, but it’s as close as can be expected given that Fromm won’t be eligible for the draft for two more seasons.
Lots can (and will) change between now and then, but Fromm looks to be the real deal. In nine games relieving an injured Jacob Eason, Fromm has completed 63.3 percent of his passes while throwing for 1,459 yards and 15 touchdowns.
Georgia’s next test will be its toughest of the season as Fromm leads the Bulldogs into Jordan-Hare Stadium to face No. 10 Auburn.
