Not all great quarterbacks are first-round picks.

Tom Brady, Joe Montana, Russell Wilson and Drew Brees are just a few who were taken in the second round or later.

In fact, the latter of that group is who one quarterback in this year’s draft aspires to be like.

Georgia’s Jake Fromm, a three-year starter who threw for at least 2,600 yards and 24 touchdowns each season, said at the NFL Combine that he would love to emulate his game after the Saints’ quarterback.

“The way he approaches the game, the way he works, the way he throws; hopefully, I can be as close to him as possible,” Fromm said.

The Brees comparisons have been whispered about Fromm before. After leading Georgia to the national championship game as a freshman some pundits began drawing similarities of the two due to Fromm’s excellent decision-making and accuracy, which Bulldogs’ offensive coordinator Jim Chaney even acknowledged, but stopped the comparisons there.

ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. cast a wide net of what Fromm’s potential in the NFL could be, saying he could fall anywhere between Brees or an Andy Dalton.

Perhaps Fromm could be that diamond in the rough in the middle rounds of the 2020 draft. Here are a few teams that could target the Georgia quarterback.
