Bills GM could not pass up on drafting Jake Fromm
Jake Fromm was one of the more well-known names in the NFL Draft, but it took a while until he finally was selected. Fromm was chosen in the fifth round, No. 167 overall by the Buffalo Bills.
So what made the Bills decide to take Fromm?
Buffalo’s GM Brandon Beane told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen that the team did not enter the day with the plan to draft Fromm, but when he was still there in the fifth, he could not pass up drafting the quarterback.
Fromm passed for 8,236 yards, 78 touchdowns and 18 interceptions in his college career at Georgia. But there were questions about his arm strength and whether he has the physical tools to succeed in the NFL. His character and ability to work well in the locker room are viewed as strengths that will serve him well.
In Buffalo, Fromm will join a quarterback room that includes Josh Allen and Matt Barkley.
