Impressions: Jake Fromm is an old-school offensive coordinators’s dream. He protects the football at an elite level, sticks around the pocket and is a highly intelligent, well-rounded player. He makes presnap adjustments on his own and knows what’s going on. The narrative on Fromm is that he has a weak arm, however that narrative is fairly unsubstantiated and overblown. His arm is perfectly acceptable for NFL standards. He routinely threw across the field and was able to reach deep areas of the field — where his arm strength lacks is on those throws, it can lose velocity and die on him.

Fromm suffered from a banged up and inexperienced receiving corps. His receivers just absolutely couldn’t separate. Fortunately, he’s the best back shoulder thrower in the class. He dials it up in tight windows and isn’t afraid to take shots in crucial situations. He can be a tick late on throws and doesn’t possess the elite arm talent to overcome the delay. Fromm’s biggest knocks are his evident lack of athleticism and his dip in play to end the season.

Overall, Fromm is the definition of game manager. A cerebral player with a ton of experience in a pro-style system, Fromm is plug and play. While he isn’t going to win any games out of structure or scrambling around, with the right team around him he can find sustained success in the league.
