Player Analysis

The Good

  • Nice footwork and mechanics
  • Can make all throws with accuracy on short and intermediate passes
  • Poised in the pocket, goes through progressions, handles pressure well
  • Good pocket awareness, will tuck the ball and run if needed
  • Good at reading defense and making adjustments

The Bad

  • Average arm causes inconsistency on deep passes
  • Mechanics fail him at times causing passes to fall short of receiver
  • Struggles to fit passes into tight windows
  • Gets lazy with footwork at times
  • Struggles with speed rushers due to his lack of agility
  • Before throwing some passes, he spins ball end over end multiple times which may lead to fumbles

Overall Assessment

PRE-DRAFT: Fromm has the smarts and savvy to be a starting quarterback in the NFL, but his average arm and lack of athleticism will limit his upside.  Expect him to sit behind a veteran quarterback for a year. If he ends up in an offense that is able to utilize his strengths with short and intermediate passes, he has a chance to be fantasy relevant.  Without knowing which team he is on, he is a pass in 1QB and a mid to late 2nd in Superflex.

POST-DRAFT: Fromm was drafted by the Bills in the fifth round.  He has some quality competition for the backup role in Matt Barkley and Davis Webb, which makes it most likely that he will end up being the third-string quarterback in Buffalo.  His lack of arm strength and smaller hands make for an interesting pairing with the Buffalo weather.  If he is able to overcome those challenges, he may develop into a quality backup.  He is someone to keep an eye on, but isn’t very likely to have fantasy relevance in 2020.
