Conclusion

Overall, Fromm is a very poised quarterback with high-end intelligence, natural accuracy/touch, and great leadership qualities. I think he is worth considering at the top of the draft as a championship-caliber signal-caller that can distribute the ball to his playmakers and won’t hurt his team with turnovers.
