1. QB Jake Fromm, Georgia

One of the biggest mysteries of the 2020 NFL Draft, many wonder what Jake Fromm can be under the guidance of Matt Nagy, John DeFilippo, and Bill Lazor. While some would consider Fromm a perfect fit in the Bears offense, keep in mind that the Bears already invested a draft pick into a quarterback this offseason by trading for Nick Foles.

While Fromm does have experience playing in big games, considering he played in the SEC, he’s got his limitations. First, he doesn’t have the biggest arm. This is an issue since there are times where the Bears offense relied on taking shots down the field in 2019.

Another issue with Fromm is that he’s not very mobile which makes him the kind of guy who’s mostly a pocket passer. With NFL offenses wanting quarterbacks to be more mobile now, Fromm will not be able to hold up unless he has a solid offensive line protecting him.

And then finally, his production took a dip in 2019 due to the lack of supporting cast that was around him. Over the last few years, Fromm has seen college teammates like Sony Michel, Nick Chubb, Javon Wims, and Riley Ridley go on to the NFL. As a result, he’s seen a decrease in categories such as touchdown passes and passing yards per attempt over the last two seasons.
