3 Offensive prospects the Steelers should target at 49
The former Georgia Bulldog Quarterback is one of the most controversial players in this year’s draft. Many pundits will say that Fromm lacks the athleticism necessary to exceed at the next level, or that he is a game manager and not someone who will step up when needed. I disagree, Fromm has done nothing but win in college and that doesn’t go unnoticed.
Fromm made the national championship game as a true freshman Quarterback. That alone is unheard of, and on top of that, he probably should have won it if not for a guy named, Tua Tagovailoa.
Fromm’s career record at Georgia is 36-7. He has won an SEC Title, Rose Bowl Championship, and a Sugar Bowl. That’s a pretty impressive resume if you ask me. Fromm only threw 5 interceptions this season, and his most in any collegiate season was 7, and that was in his freshman season. That being said mistakes are very limited in his game.
With an aging Ben Roethlisberger, and sub-par depth behind him why not take a chance on a proven winner. Fromm has been so reliable that Georgia Coach, Kirby Smart, was willing to let Justin Fields leave on transfer. That says something about how highly regarded Jake Fromm is in that building.
He may not be the uber-athletic Kyler Murray, or the success story of Baker Mayfield, but there hasn’t been a more reliable Quarterback than Jake Fromm. Given the chance to learn under a Quarterback such as Big Ben, Fromm could provide the Steelers much needed stability under center for years to come.
