Pre-combine Georgia football 2020 NFL Draft projections: Jake Fromm staying down South?

Jake Fromm-Georgia football-UGA football
Former Georgia quarterback appears to have his draft stock on the rise, and he could end up playing pro ball close to his collegiate stomping grounds.

It’s referred to as the NFL draft “process” for a reason.

The millions of dollars and championship hopes at stake are two reasons for that, and the NFL teams’ changing needs and players’ changing bodies and stock value are others.

The game film and postseason all-star games are in the books, and next up is the 2020 NFL Combine in Indianapolis from Feb. 23 through March 2. This year’s event will have some prime-time evening viewing, so the drill work and testing figure to get more public attention than ever before.

Georgia football will have 10 players taking part in the combine — tied for second-most among SEC teams with Alabama, behind only LSU.

The players’ performances have the potential to greatly affect their draft stock, for better or worse, as they move up or down the totem pole at their respective positions.

The interest level in the NFL is such fans can’t wait for the actual draft — April 23-25 in Las Vegas — hence the proliferation of mock drafts. The first round takes place on the first day, the second and third rounds take place on the second day and Day Three consists of the final four rounds of the 255 players who will be selected.

A consensus is beginning to shake out that Georgia will have five players selected in the first two days, and possibly six.
