Los Angeles Chargers second-round selection: Jake Fromm, quarterback, Georgia
I don’t care how you do it. If you trade back up into the first, great. If you stay put and take Fromm, great. Fromm is up near the top on my gradings scale, and the fact that he could be a late first or early second-round selection is perfect for the Chargers should they want that best player available in the first round.
Now, the immediate backlash to taking Fromm would be, “He doesn’t have an arm!”. Trust me, it simply isn’t true. Fromm has more of an arm than most scouts give him credit for, and this play below is proof of such. Opposite hash, retreating from pressure, off-balance, delivers it perfectly. If it reminds you of Rivers to Antonio Gates, it reminds me of it too.

Fromm showcases some great poise as a passer, and if the Chargers elect to take him they’ll be getting one of the smarter quarterbacks in this draft.
Georgia’s scheme held Fromm back a lot, and he didn’t have the best weapons out wide, but the Chargers, fortunately, have a much better wide receiver corps than Georgia to help Fromm’s transition to the NFL.
